Down the rabbit hole to a GF Wonderland

Where has the year gone? It’s coming up to my first year wedding anniversary which got me reminiscing about the lead up to our wedding and it brought back some very happy memories. 

One of the best food related memories was my kitchen tea. My two beautiful sisters and mum threw me a kitchen tea to remember. Knowing how much I loved Alice in Wonderland, they themed the event as the Mad Hatters Kitchen Tea Party. 

They transformed my parents living room into my very own wonderland! With huge playing cards, teapots full of flowers, hanging lanterns and they even had a digital projection of the original animation on the wall! 

Guests were told to wear their maddest hat, my sisters dressed up as the white rabbits and of course I dressed up as Alice. 

There was an abundance of gluten free food and all the desserts were to die for. But the highlight of the day was my themed cake. It was shaped as a Mad Hatters hat - moist orange syrup cake on the inside with a velvety purple icing on the outside. King & Queen playing cards were placed on one side of the hat and cute little mushrooms surrounded the base. All my guests - gluten free or not - loved it!

My amazing Mad Hatters cake!

If you are looking for a good gluten free cake maker, I highly recommend Carol Medcalf at Cake Plus. She made this amazing creation for my Kitchen Tea and also made the top layer of my wedding cake.
