K's 4th Birthday Party - Alice in Wonderland; The cake

Part 3

Hi! Welcome to part 3 of K's Alice In Wonderland 4th birthday party. In case you've missed any of it I've covered decorations here and here. Today I'll be showing off her amazing cake. Our cousin (or Auntie Cousin as we like to call her) is an incredibly talented cake decorator. I wish she had a website to showcase all of the cakes she's made but unfortunately she doesn't. Maybe make a Flickr page or something, Auntie Cousin so we can show you off?

Well, until that happens, you will have to trust me on the other cakes based on this beautiful creation she made for K. It started with this photo I found on the internet. Originally I thought I wanted a topsy turvy cake with three layers but based on the number of people we had invited, it seemed like that would be way more cake than we'd need. I showed three pictures of cakes to K and let her pick her favorite. She chose this one because she liked the blue and the flowers. I sent the photo to Auntie Cousin and asked her if she could do it but just the bottom blue layer. Originally I had intended to use an actual teacup on the top but Auntie Cousin came up with her own amazing idea and I like it so much better.

The day before the party, Auntie Cousin's power went out and was out for basically the entire day. She ended up coming over to our house to make the cake here. Thankfully by the time she was ready to decorate their power came back on and she went home to finish. We made her promise though that she wouldn't be up until all hours in the night decorating and I'm happy to report she listened!

So, without further ado, the CAKE:
Can you tell she likes it?

Isn't it beautiful?!?

Can you believe she made the teapot and cups???

She was so happy listening to everyone sing to her.

Make a wish!

She was so happy to have a 4 candle on her cake.

You can see the layers of fondant and how much time went into the cake.

Auntie Cousin added sprinkles in the layers of frosting between the cake.

K was so excited about her cake and who can blame her?!? It was beautiful and tasted amazing. We are so blessed to have so many talented family members and friends who so graciously donate their time and talents to us and we are so grateful!  We love you all!

  1. Awww, Kait's grin is so adorable! Such a great cake. :)

  2. I love that the cake matches her little Alice outfit. Didn't realize it while we were there, but now I can see the color coordination. Tell her that her Auntie A and Uncle Goofball love her very much. Hugs!!
