Thanks Laura-- there have been few more parties than that and I was hoping to find more pictures of different parties that have been posted.

Im mainly looking for photos of decor, cakes, favors, etc...

I know very few respond to old threads being bumped so I was hoping someone would see this who had a party and re-post some photos... Thanks :)

    Really just look up Mad Hatter cakes online and you will get tons. That's what I did for our reception we are having here. Also I have seen people give cups and saucers and small tea sets as favors. I hope others post pics for you.

    For those who have had people make your cakes at home (not at disney)-- how do you get the pans that lean? Is there somewhere to buy them or is there a technique in knotching the cake out in a section to make them lean? If you havent done a leaning cake I would LOVE to see those photos as well!

    Maggie,
    You might try using a regular base then on the next base cut the top of diagonally, using dowels to suport the two layers. If adding the third tier do the same. On DFTW that aired on food network last night they mentioned holding them toegtehr with dowels, and I just assumed that they sliced the top portion off.It seems that the trick would be to have the cake stacked in such a way that it isn't too heavy on one side.

    yikes... haha I can just imagine my cake caving in on me!! I wonder if they stack then decorate or try and decorate and then stack (I dont know how they could do that without messing up thought). If they stack then decorate i would be so afraid that it would cave in on me... especially since its leaning. :scared:

    Wow that answers my questions-- very very helpful, thank-you!
    Good luck if you're doing a cake. I don't think I could. I would love to be able to but I'm not so savvy in that area. :laughing: Post some pics if you are able to make one!

    thanks maggie. the reason I wanted a cake like that and not the "smooth" looking frosting is b/c the frosting I had was well...frosting, and SO good. the smooth kind is not really that edible and pretty nasty. plus, this way was WAY cheaper and just as cute IMO!

    I can't resist posting photos of our Mad Hatter Themed reception :yay:

    We had it at the Wonders Lounge in The Wonders of Life Pavillion in Epcot in case anyone was wondering where you get a big Circus tent in the middle of all your photos :)

    Here's the cake table with some of our extra hats laying around we ordered at Oriental Trading Company to leave on each chair as guests arrived (of course we encouraged all of our guests to wear wacky hats). Excuse the Epcot people in the photo ready to take our cake away to finish cutting it!



    Here's a closeup of our centerpieces. My mom got a bunch of teapots from Goodwill and a friend painted them all different bright colors. They were filled with swirly lollipops, chocolate playing cards, birds of paradise, etc:





    Overview of the room, we had standard white tablecloths and a different bright colored overlay on top for each table.



    Favors, wedding tins bought at Michaels filled with little chocolates shaped like teacups & teapots (bought the molds on ebay and used different colored chocolate), tied with a red ribbon:



    Our menu cards:





    We had Alice In Wonderland songs playing as everyone entered, like Painting the Roses Red, etc, and The Queen of Hearts & Mad Hatter to entertain everyone, and this dessert:



    I was trying to figure out how to get paper Chinese lanterns overhead but it was going to be too difficult. And for our save the date magnets we had a picture of the White Rabbit showing his pocket watch to Alice with "Save the Date & Don't be Late...".

    There's so many ways to have fun with this theme!
