Multiple layers of topsy turvy colorful fun, reminiscent of Disney's enchanting depiction of C.S. Lewis' "Alice in Wonderland."

  • Very fun and simple:
  • Home made fondant icing (marshmallow and powdered sugar) with food coloring (used Disney "Whiney the Pooh" food dye kit to get most colors),
  • 3 large ready to use cans of whipped cream icing,
  • 3 boxes of cake mix: chocolate, Madegascar Vanilla and vanilla with colored sprinkles.
  1. Fondant Icing: Melt 16oz of mini marshmallows & 2Tbsp water in microwave in 30 second increments for a total of 2.5 min, stirring in-between each heating. once all melted, add 2lbs of powdered sugar and knead (hint, remove jewelry and cover your fingers, hands, wrists and coutertop with butter or crisco). The mixture will become very dough like (aprox 6min). Cover in butter, plastic wrap, then plastic baggie and refridgerate--will last week

  2. Bake 6 layers of cake (3 boxes), round works best, then allow to cool. (the instructions for this are found easily on any box cake of your choice). Allow to cool, then cut 4 of the round layers into gradually smaller rounds. Some rounds may be cut lengthwise at an angle to give the overall cake a topsy turvy look at the end. Stick bottom layers together with store bought icing (cream cheese works best for us). Now Get Ready to Fondant!!

  3. To work fondant, mic for 30 secs. Cover working space with corn starch. Cut the fondant into 4 segments & dying, the colors used here: 1 segment pink, 1 blue, 1/2 green, 1/2 yellow, 1/4 brown, 1/4 purple and other 1/2 segment left white. Roll out a large piece of fondant and lay over the pre-iced bottom layer, cut around edges, repeat these steps layer by layer. Cut or roll shapes for each layer & don't forget the mushroom, catepillar & FUN!
