Alice In Wonderland

This weekend I made a cake that I have been dreaming about for awhile now. David and I moved into our first house a month ago. Yesterday was our housewarming party. We called it "Welcome To Our Wonderland" based on Disney's Alice in Wonderland. It was a childhood favorite for me. However this cake did not come easy for me. I constructed each layer, stacked it, and did a few decorations. I planned to finish the cake the morning before the party. I woke up in the morning to find this.....

I have no idea what happened! Thankfully the top two tiers were salvageable. David was so sweet, he ran to the store to get supplies for me so I could fix the cake before the party. I managed to pull it off and love the end result!

I found this cake stand at a secondhand store, how perfect is this? It just screams Queen of Hearts!
My favorite detail of this cake is the little card guy who was painting the roses red. Don't you just want to pinch him he's so cute?!

I was also ambitious and made sugar cookies decorated in Royal Icing. Its only my second attempt at decorating cookies, but I'm really enjoying it. I love how they turned out!
It was a long day, but I managed to complete the cake and nearly everything on the table was made from scratch by me as well. The party was great, the food delicious and best of all, the cake was a hit!

Our house is definitely warmed! Now it really feels like home!
