Alice in Wonderland Topsy Turvy Sweet 16 Cake (2396)
We created the cake for a sweet 16 this weekend at the Villa in Mountain Lakes, NJ and the party was planned by Extraordinary Productions.
The top of the flared topsy turvy cake is sculpted like a green textured top hat. A giant purple and glittery ’16’ stands above the hat with thick gold wires exploding out. Each wire has a different trinket inspired from the book include poison, a teapot, a tea cup and a key.
The magical white rabbit is peaking out of the top hat and next to the sculpted rabbit is a chain link connected to a clock clock at the base of the second tier. A hot pink cummerbund wraps around the base of the top tier with flowers at the base.
The next tier is decorated in a white and black diamond checkered pattern. Clusters of flowers decorate the top and bottom of the tier along with a magical red mushroom. Partially hidden from the mushroom is a gold key hole directly to the right.
The final tier is covered in turquoise fondant with whimsical purple swirls. A polka dotted mushroom sits at the base with 3 playing cards (Queen of Hearts, Ace of Spades, & King of Diamonds). LED lights, although hard to see in our pictures were also placed throughout the cake.
Happy Sweet 16!
Here’s a video of the cake we shot at the bakery:
Update: We recreated this cake in dessert table form with macarons and cupcakes to add to the whimsical feel:
