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.

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.
