First off I want to say that this is one of the best displays of craftsmanship with fondant I have seen! They really function together as a set, and I like how they all tie together. The two green cupcakes really knock my socks off! I'm happy this was inspired not only by the movie, but the books as well. Your color pallet is excellent, and the reoccurring flowers were a nice touch. One of the only things I could be knit picky about is the cheshire cat cupcake. He seems just a tad flat and unrelated to the group. (Mind you, this is me really stretching to find something wrong.) I would have liked to see some of the more three dimensional aspects like in the other cupcakes. Also he seems a little disjointed because all the other cupcakes have the ruffle edges. Alone he's a wonderful work, but I don't feel he's adding a lot to the entire set. Anyways, wonder, excellent, astounding, amazing! You are a real gift to DA!
I thought it was amazing. The colors are well balanced and the themes for each cupcake are well thought out. The patterns on the fondant are so cute. I love how you represented some of the characters through the decorations on the cupcakes. my first suggestion is that you only do the smile for the cat or just the stripes. The reasons for this is because with the amount you did for the others is just something that represents them, while on the cat you did his face. My second suggestion is that you use diffrent cutters for the edges of the fondant bottoms. Over all through it is all toghether a master piece.
Those look really good! I try to do stuff like that but I am not a really good baker or decorator so it ends up looking really bad. Alice in Wonderland is my favorite movie, so I try to mimic it in designs and stuff but I haven't thought about it in cupcake design
I am a Masters student based in Perth WA currently completing an elective on Curatorship and exhibiting. I have to set up an exhibition and I was referred to your work as perfect for the show. Happy for you to submit beyond the 5th if you need to… its a bit different- you only have to post an example of some of your work at this stage, preferably with an Alice theme.
Dont hesitate to ask me questions.
