Disney's Alice in Wonderland; The First Half Of The Dozen Cupcakes

I decided after making these, never to curse anyone who drives 50 in a 70 zone. They may have Disney Alice in Wonderland themed cupcakes in their car, that they've just spent two days making, sliding around in their box, playing bumper cars with the other cupcakes. Highly stressful. And if for that reason, I totally understand.

Teapot & Teacup Notes

Flowers are fondant cut out using a fondant press. Little edible sugar balls were used as centres. If they won't stick, just use a little dab of sugar water.

Doorknob Notes

 When finished, brush with a golden edible powder to give a metallic finish.

Disney's Alice in Wonderland; A Dozen Cupcakes; Mad Hatter's Hat

Mad Hatter Hat Notes

Colours

  • Green
  • Deep green
  • LIght yellow 

Roll a little thick tube of green fondant for the hat. Cut a strip of dark green fondant and wrap it around the base of the hat. Cut a circle out of the green and attach the hat onto the base using a little swipe of water. Curl the edges up slightly. Cut a small rectangle and write 10/6. Curl the edges slightly, and attach to hat so it looks like it is cming out of the band.

Rose Notes

I used a fondant press to make leaves. To make roses and simple leaves, check out this easy tutorial from Glorious Treats. I make my roses thinner to make them daintier, but you'll figure out what you preferhttp://www.glorioustreats.com/2012/02/how-to-make-fondant-roses-and-leaves.html 

Disney's Alice in Wonderland; A Dozen Cupcakes; The Key

Key Notes

Colour

  • Golden Yellow

The key is fondant pressed into a key chocolate mold. Dust mold generously with cornflour or icing sugar first to make sure fondant doesn't stick. Brush with gold edible powder.

  Disney's Alice in Wonderland; A Dozen Cupcakes; Eat Me Cookies

Eat Me Cookie Notes

Colours

  • Pink
  • Purple
  • Yellow

Roll out fondant and cut out with mini cookie cutters. Write out 'Eat Me' 'Try Me' or 'Take One' on the fondant with edible black pen. Brush a little water around the text and scatter sprinkles the colour of the fondant

The second half of the cupcakes will be published tomorrow. And the final three Peter Rabbit recipes next week!
