This particular cake took me hours to complete! I did not know the dimensions of the actual cake, so I had to estimate and reduce it to 1/12 scale. Then I had to start making the layers and adding details as I went along. The macaroons along the bottom layer and on the the middle layers took ages! I have never ever been so happy to complete something. After baking it, I had to add the final touches (that was my favorite part and the easiest too).

Alice in the Wonderland
I just can't escape making cakes! So it's about time I share a very original piece-- an Alice in the Wonderland wedding cake. This piece wasn't actually my idea. I found a picture online of a real wedding cake like this! Click here for the picture of the actual cake (all credit to bride.ca).
I am not huge on the color pink, but I do have my "moments." One of those moments is right now. I really do like the pink theme of this cake! But I wouldn't care for it as my own wedding cake.
Today was my first day of school. Over the summer, I have forgotten what it's like! It is refreshing to have a break and start all over again though. What I dislike the most is that it has really cut into my mini-making time and will continue to do so even more as the year goes on. But it is not stopping me from crafting-- no way! My time is just more limited now. The weekend is going to be my best friend again!
Enjoy the very unique cake!
