I did this cake last week for a Alice in wonderlandish baby shower.  She gave me the colors to work with and the tea party idea and let me run with it.  So the bottom tier is a giant tea cup the middle is a topsy turvy layer and the top is the tea pot.  The cake is also colored to match with a different flavor for each color.  I used kool-aid packets to flavor them strawberry lemon and raspberry blue lemonade.  It tasted like fruity pebbles.  I made the tea pot with rice crispy and covered everything with marshmallow fondant.  There are little bobbles of fondant on wire coming out from the cake to add whimsy too.
I really enjoyed making it.  It had been a while since Id made such a fun cake.  thanks for looking C&C welcome

I love a topsy turvy cake!  Very lovely job.  I'd never heard of using kool aid to flavor cake batter, how interesting!

Thank you.  The koolaid flavored it really well and since I was already coloring it didn't matter that it didn't stay white.  You should give it a try you can come up with some really wild flavors.

Thank you so much! I do wish she would of allowed me to go even more alice in wonderland. I would of loved to do a top hat layer , but she wanted it  more centered on the tea party part. But in compromise we came up with this. We were both happy in the end.
