An Alice in Wonderland Tea Party Cake

This was a cake that I was asked to do for Kids LA Magazine Spring 2010. The theme was a tea party with the Alice in Wonderland  motif to be incorporated. I made a topsy turvy cake thinking that this was the perfect twist since this new version seems to be a little bit of a twist as well. My son, Joey was a great help to me -watching the trailer and telling me what colors to use and what to incorporate. I decorated the cake with fondant in vibrant colors and  I also did a few cupcakes using red cupcake wrappers and polka dot cupcake wrappers. I just piped buttercream and placed fondant cut-outs. I was happy to see it turned out well for the shoot!

Popcorn Cupcakes

These popcorn cupcakes are a staple at my house. Whenever my sons friend, Jonah, comes over for a playdate, these tasty treats have to be on the table ready. Luckily they are super easy and quick to make. 

First, I bake the cupcakes and let them cool. I used a recipe from Martha Stewart Cupcakes. 

I use a cupcake sleeve with a popcorn motif, just peel of the adhesive sticker and wrap them around the cupcake.

Frost your cupcakes with white icing and dip in mini marshmallows.

I use yellow Jimmies to sprinkle on top of the cupcake to look like butter!!!!

Voila!!! You have popcorn cupcakes in minutes.

Sweet Baking!
