The Alice in Wonderland cake made for Jolie's birthday party was one of our favorite cakes this month. The client gave Rick full artistic control over the design. She wanted something funky and colorful and left all the details up to him. Rick made each tier with a different scene from Wonderland and added hand painted characters. Handcrafted whimsical flowers and colorful mushrooms, adorned the cake, and at the base and on top of the cake was a black and white checkerboard pattern. The cake was made for a child's first birthday luau, which is customary in Hawaii. In Polynesian culture, reaching a baby's first year is considered a huge milestone, and a cause for celebration. A giant checkerboard "1" was placed on top in Jolie's honor. The beautiful cake was a decadent display of color on the outside and a rich Peanut Butter Fudgey flavor on the inside. The Alice in Wonderland themed party took place at a hotel in Waikiki. Large custom made characters were placed in the room and each table had a whimsical centerpiece scene, thoughtfully created. In the center of the room was the tea party table, with cookies around it and in the middle we placed the cake. Our clients did a fabulous job carrying out the theme and the cake looked right at home. In Wonderland.
Aloha, 'til next time!
