Alice in Wonderland theme cupcakes

So turning a giant cupcakes into a Cheshire cat was harder than I thought it would be. In hindsight, I think I should have used a different tip, like a star, to hide any hiccups. But I was trying to go for the striped look. Or next time, after I pipe, I’ll smooth it out with an angled spatula. I don’t know.

Anyhow, it’s done and here you go:

And the client wanted some mini cupcakes with red roses on them as well as some white roses with red on them, ala “painting the roses red” get it?? ah ha!

Alice in Wonderland themed cupcakes - Painting the Roses red

For these, I ordered gum paste red and white roses from Wholesale Sugar Flowers and some Wilton red decorating spray and went to town. It was really fun spraying those roses! Now I’m itching to get an airbrush set. HAHA.

The Cheshire Cat was my Queen of Hearts flavor, the rose cupcakes were vanilla with vanilla buttercream and the tea cakes (not pictured) were Campfire.

  2. Jenny – I'd love to learn how to make gumpaste flowers! I just wish I had time. I really wanted to go to Cake Camp this year because they had a lot of classes I wanted to take but I didn't plan well enough for it financially. So maybe next year. In a pinch though, Wholesale Sugar Flowers is great. AND they are in San Diego so I get my flowers like next day!

    Thanks Anonymous! Just saw that 🙂

  3. Cute! I cant believe how cheap those flowers are! Makes it seem almost pointless making them myself, but I do love to make everything myself.
