The Queen of Hearts’ Painted Rose Cupcakes

Posted January 23, 2014 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Book of the Month Recipes / 4 Comments

Time for the most important part of the meal: dessert! Cupcakes are the perfect teatime dessert, and the best thing about these are their versatility. Any cake flavor will do! I opted for sour cherry cupcakes, taking my cue from the Queen of Hearts’ tarts. Since actual sour cherries are out of season at the moment, I soaked some dark sweet cherries in a mix of lemon juice, cherry juice, and a bit of sugar.

Fancy Dancy Stuffed Mushrooms (an Alison’s Wonderland Original Recipe)!

Bread and Butterflies

Posted January 3, 2014 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Book of the Month Recipes / 0 Comments

It seemed only fitting that my first Book of the Month should be Alice in Wonderland. Since it makes such a great tea party theme, each of my recipes for this book will be of the finger food variety.  And with Valentine’s Day just around the bend, a dozen tarts or pasties make a great gift!

Let’s start the meal off with a mouth-watering appetizer, shall we?
