What makes Lewis Carroll's novel even more wonderful is the surplus of food references, from the Mad Hatter's Tea Party to the talk of pepper in soup with the Duchess to the bottle marked "DRINK ME," filled with a concoction tasting "of cherry-tart, custard, pine-apple, roast turkey, toffy, and hot buttered toast."
I loved both the book and the original Disney animated version, so when the new Tim Burton version of Alice in Wonderland came out, I definitely wanted to make something Alice-themed. I remembered the scene in the original Disney cartoon where Alice finds the tempting "Eat Me" cookies (in the novel, it was actually an "Eat Me" cake), and decided that I'd recreate those cookies in real life.
I'll be entering these cookies in the Eating Your Words Challenge 2010 hosted by Tangled Noodle and Savor the Thyme. The objective? "'Write, spell, or draw' using food or drink."
