Alice In Wonderland Cheshire Cat Wedding Cake

This was SO much easier to do in buttercream! I'll never go back to struggling to cover these tiers in fondant!!

Did the wild colours with Americolor dyes, fondant detailing. Cheshire cat in gumpaste. Pearls in fondant dusted with irridescent powder.

Cake is Pistachio with Passionfruit buttercream, Dark Chocolate with Grand Marnier buttercream & Banana with Coconut buttercream.

Great job!!! Amazing!! How do you do this with BC without mucking it up putting it together??

Price Says... 9 years ago

Great cake. It's so smooth, it really looks like fondant!

antonia74 Says... 9 years ago

Freeze it for 2-3 hours before transporting it. When you assemble (I only do assembly on-site), slides together like a dream!

JenniferRemington Says... 9 years ago

Wow I just keep coming back! I can't get over how cool this is. Just tried my first topsy turvy cake. Didn't turn out this good. Did you hollow out your cakes so that they are sitting on a flat surface, or are they really setting up like that? Great job! P.S. thanks for the sites.

lovable_lauren3 Says... 9 years ago

Wow this is so cool!!! I tried a tilted cake once and it was a disaster....i also looked of the site instructions....any other tips you can give me?? :) thanks

sweetlybaked Says... 8 years ago

This cake is AMAZING! Such nice clean lines. I want to do one of these for my husband's 30th the beginning of November. Any tips on how to get mine looking REMOTELY like yours?! What sizes did you use? Thank you for any advice you can give me.

antonia74 Says... 8 years ago

Sorry Ginadeca, I promised my business partner that I would not share the recipes. It took us so long to test the recipes when we first got started in business. And Mollielor, there is a tutorial for Topsy Turvy cakes on this site, under the Articles tab at the top of every page. It's a great explanation for the technique! My pans were 6"/9"/12"

cakenutz Says... 8 years ago

absolutely adorable!

kcakes Says... 8 years ago

Question. I am new to cake decorating. Could you use dowel rods for this construction? If not, what do you use?? Awesome job on the cake!

MystiqueFire Says... 8 years ago

I'm in love with this cake! I love the cheshire cat!! That was my favorite movie as a kid!

kelby Says... 8 years ago

Alice in Wonderland is the greatest book ever, and that cake is awesome. I can't believe its not fondant all over that. So smooth, an excellent job.

antonia74 Says... 8 years ago

I did use wooden dowels for this construction, yes. Wooden dowels hold up each tier and then I drove a long sharp wooden dowel down the centre (right through each cake board and into the 1/2" thick cake drum on the bottom.) That holds it perfectly!

MikkelPaige Says... 8 years ago

Not only is it beautiful but the inside sounds DELICIOUS! Wish I could've had a piece!

Hill1978 Says... 8 years ago

Okay, I'm totally new at this, but want to make a topsy-turvy cake for my daughter's first birthday! I'm a cake novice, at best, but am willing to try! My question is: How do you get the actual cake layers in that "askew" shape? Is there a special pan, or what? Help me please! 8O

Grinnergirl Says... 8 years ago

Antonia....WOW!!! I have been making cakes for my family for about a year! So they are pretty easy to please. My best friend has twins and they are wanting a "crooked cake". Any advice/help you can send would be great. Others mentioned directions on CC....how do I track those down? Thanks! grinnergirl@comcast.net

You freeze the cake with the frosting on it? Then assemble?

antonia74 Says... 7 years ago

I don't freeze it solid. After icing the cake, I just chill the tiers in the freezer for a few hours before I deliver/assemble it. It's super-cold but not frozen solid at all.

sheilaski Says... 7 years ago

hi i really love your cake, can u please email me your directions and recipe for your cakes? thanks in advance!!! svinzju@yahoo.com
