So my friend comes over and says it is his girlfriend's b-day and he wants to surprise her with a cake. The theme is Alice in Wonderland and he wanted a Cheshire Cat. I was so excited and was thrilled to do it. Then he showed me the picture. It was soooooooooooo scary. A totally twisted version. Not the one I grew up with for sure. Well I did it and it turned out fun and came out pretty good. Here's the problem, it scared the pants off of my 4yr old. She actually had nightmares! I am almost wishing I had not done it. (Almost icon_twisted.gif )

Anybody get cakes like this?

I agree with your 4-yr old! Great execution, but where would you find a Cheshire cat like that? And why would that be a romantic gesture for a GF's b'day? MEN-LOL! No, if she's into this stuff then she'll love it because the cake is VERY well done. Good job, but eeewwww! icon_wink.gif

Thanks guys, I guess she loved it! She likes this sort of thing. It is the American Mcgee Cheshire Cat, one of my friends said it is a book. The body of the cat is just a cat's skeleton. Really strange and very dark. He only wanted the head, thank God.

oh ya that is a scary cat . lol... I can relate my step kids HATED that I made a boob cake for their mom's boyfriend ( she asked lol) I was forbidden to post the picture on facebook where I usually post my cakes , and they hated seeing it on the table. ( they ate a piece though lol)

They are awesome kids though ( 6 and 11) when I suggested making cake balls the 11 yr old joked " c'mon michelle you made boobs now you want to make balls? " I then told her they were on sticks- she said that was worse! lol... she made me laugh so hard I cried....

Yiikes icon_surprised.gif my 4 year old would be freaked too! But you did a good job. Sometimes you have to do cakes that you're not crazy about. But at least it was an 'interesting' challenge

Oh I loved that game when I was younger (American McGee's Alice for the PC) and I think you did a great job on it. Sorry it scared the kid, but man... lots of fun.
