Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland pulls viewers down a whimsical, yet all-too familiar, rabbit-hole. In this newly adapted sequel to Lewis Carrol’s novel, Alice is a pale nineteen year old who despises corsets, stockings, and more generally, the altogether restrictive nature of life in Victorian England. Eager to escape from a rather intimidating marriage proposal, Alice chases after the scurrying White Rabbit and tumbles into Wonderland (or Underland, as it is referred to in the film), where the hot tempered, big-headed Red Queen reigns supreme.
Some of our cake stands would happily sit at the Mad Hatters tea party, so we've named two (Alice in Wonderland & The Rabbitt) in honour of this visually exciting and maverick film, which bottled up would say 'Watch me and eat Cake'!
