Alice in Wonderland Chess Cake by prismkitty Alice in Wonderland Chess Cake by prismkitty
This cake was for an Alice in Wonderland themed party for my sister’s 25th b-day. ^^ I made the chess pieces from white and dark chocolate, the frosting is made from scratch, the cake itself is from a box (If I’m spending all the time on the frosting, I don’t have time to make the cake from scratch ^_^). An unfortunate issue was that as the evening went on, the cake started to collapse under the weight of the chess pieces. ^^;;

The cookies in the background were from a bakery, so no, I didn’t make the fancy, cute cookies.
----------------------

For our birthdays, my sister and I have weeklong celebrations; she plans mine and I plan hers. For her 25th b-day, the theme I did was Alice in Wonderland/Chess. Each day there was a pile of twenty-five something (sprinkles, buttons, marshmallows, etc.), a special thing for the day (a gift, a game night with family, a trip to Toronto, etc.), and a card with one of the Sir John Tenniel Alice illustrations on one side and a piece of prose written by me, in the style of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, that was a clue to the day’s surprise. The prose had blank spaces in it that could be solved by the pieces I arranged on the chess board every day.

After the week was over (her birthday was on a Tuesday), I surprised her the following Saturday by throwing her an Alice in Wonderland themed tea/b-day party, complete with party goers in Alice costumes.

Haha, yeah, you should have distributed the pieces over the top so that the pieces won't fall off.

I found this and haven't stopped thinking about it!! Totally amazing. Did you use a recipe that I could find online? Or you'd be willing to share?
I even posted a link in my blog to this deviation. I love chess and I love baking so it's perfect.
Do you blog about baking or cooking at all? Have you made any other intricate foods like this?

Absolutely! ^_^ My sister (and I) are huge fans of both books, so for her birthweek (we celebrate birthweeks not birthdays) last year, I made the theme Alice in Wonderland/Through the looking glass.

Every day there was a card with a John Tenniel illustration and a short piece of prose that I wrote in the style of the books. The prose was a clue to the activities of the day. There were blanks in the prose, which could be solved by a very simple puzzle I set up daily on my chess board.

Some activities for the week included: a tea party and a journey to which she didn't know the destination.

Oh wow, that sounds like so much fun. I would like to do that :)

I'm not that great with English prose. Hopefully the creative writing class i'm about to take this spring, will help me write some neat things :)

Oh well if you're ever in the LA area there is this neat Cafe called Royal T and they are having this neat Alice in Wonderland event where everyone dresses up and eat from a special Alice menu. I wanted to to be the White queen but I don't think everyone will recognize me...

I agree with everyone above. This is an amazing effort! How on earth will you upstage this next year?

I have no idea. o.O I went all out for her 25th, so she's stated she doesn't expect anything too big for next year. Perhaps I should just take a few years and do little b-day weeks and then do another uber one for her 30th? ^_^
