Enchanted Woodland Birthday Cake

Remember Enid Blyton?  Remember all her delightful tales of enchanted trees and fairy-folk and lands that come and go?  Looking through photos of Olivia's enchanted woodland party brought all those stories back to me.  Olivia's mum, Sharnel, created a magical setting with fairy toadstools for the children to sit on, an owl sitting on a tree branch, dew drops and woodland berry punch, fairy dust, and live deer wandering around! 

I used Olivia's birthday invitation as reference for her birthday cake, and making it was a truly magical experience.    

To explore more images from the party, see Sharnel Dollar's blog, My Life - My Loves.

"Cake was amazing!  Will have to send you photos.  Dad loved Noddy so much he took it off the top of the cake and says he's going to keep it (straight to the games room) - it is currently living in their dining room on top of a china cabinet - lol."

Alice in Wonderland birthday cupcakes

These Alice in Wonderland cupcakes were specially made for Olivia's madhatter birthday party.  The cupcake designs were based on Tim Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland.  The gate I made was inspired by the gate (to wonderland) in the movie, lined by fantasy flowers.  Instead of scrolls and flounces on top of the gate, I piped 'Olivia'.  I love the way these turned out - colourful and vibrant - pure magic.

"Thank you so much for your efforts.  The cakes tasted as fabulous as they looked and Olivia was thrilled.  I have passed your details on to a number of the parents who were at the party.  Thank you for all your efforts."
