Alice in Wonderland cast, as seen on a young guest in Epcot.

On our last visit to Walt Disney World, I met a teenage guest in Epcot who shared my love of Alice in Wonderland (1951).  She had broken her ankle shortly before her family’s vacation, and she decided that she wouldn’t let being wheelchair-bound and in a leg cast impair her enjoyment of the parks.  Her artistic sister helped her to cover every inch of the cast with characters from the movie, and they were nice enough to talk with me about it and let me take a quick photo for my scrapbook.  I hope that the cheerful artwork helped her keep a positive attitude, and that she had a speedy recovery!

Alice in Wonderland Style Cookies

My first thought when I saw the below cookies was, “I think I’ve found my next baking project.”

My second thought was, “I want to see more like this!”

So, thanks to the uncredited photo I saw on Tumblr (right), I’ll be starting a new series on this blog, which I’m awkwardly referring to as “Life Imitates the Art of Disney.”  Posts with that tag will be about people who bring the world of Disney into their real-life creative endeavors.

Left: cookies screencaped from Disney's Alice in Wonderland (1951).  Right: eerily similar real-life cookies.  Color me impressed!

On the left is a screencap from Alice in Wonderland (1951).  On the right are some real-life cookies I saw on Tumblr while searching for goodies to hand out as wedding favors.  The attention to detail in recreating the shot is pretty fantastic.  If anybody knows the origin of this photo, I’d love to give credit to the photographer/baker responsible.

 

UPDATE: Many thanks to reader C.A. Stavridis, who appears to have found the original source of these cookies!  Check out the recipe and method of execution for each of the cookies over at Diamonds for Dessert.
