This one was a lot of fun to plan and execute...I started with a bunch of ideas from the bride, who was doing a Wonderland-type theme for flowers and colors. The issue was that the two ideas she had included the colorful wonky cakes and a more traditional "pretty" cake. So I wanted to do both the tone of the pretty cake but have it be more whimsical at the same time.
The sketch I came up with had a tree curving around the cake, which included scenes from the Classic Alice, not the Disney version. Disney is copyrighted and the classic version isn't, and I didn't want to do a cartoon cake anyway.
So this is the final result:
My goal for this cake was to do something that was true to the book but also a little romantic like one of the pictures the bride liked. The light blue kept it soft...If I had gone with a deeper color it would have been cartoony, which is what I didn't want. I did put a brighter blue on the book cover to go with the deeper colors that the bride was using and to tie it together with the bottom tiers.
