Following the worldwide success of 2010’s Alice in Wonderland, fans patiently have waited for the followup to Tim Burton‘s stunning reimagination of the beloved series of Lewis Carroll stories. Toronto proudly hosts a Pop-Up shop celebrating ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS and beginning Saturday, fans will have a rare opportunity themselves to get the full Alice experience!
The Pop-Up exhibit is put together by famed Cakemaker Yolanda Gampp, recreating the Mad Hatter‘s (reprised in the Movie by Johnny Depp) Tea Party Table! Gampp will even be meeting fans this Saturday between 11:30 AM and 3:30 PM at the venue. The first 100 guests even get to try her cake!
We had the amazing opportunity to visit the exhibit and even got to try a slice of her famous chocolate cake. And it was divine! Gampp tells me her favourite is chocolate and it is her go-to still when inviting her friends over! There was a cake replica of the Madhatter‘s hat and we can say we got to taste its genius!

Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska) has spent the past few years following in her father’s footsteps and sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland and her friends the White Rabbit (Michael Sheen), Absolem (Alan Rickman), the Cheshire Cat (Stephen Fry) and the Mad Hatter (JohnnyDepp), who is not himself. The Hatter has lost his Muchness, so Mirana (Anne Hathaway) sends Alice on a quest to borrow the Chronosphere, a metallic globe inside the chamber of the Grand Clock which powers all time. Returning to the past, she comes across friends – and enemies – at different points in their lives, and embarks on a perilous race to save the Hatter before time runs out.
The ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS exhibit runs Friday, May 20-27, 2016 at 277 Queen Street West in Toronto! Join the conversation using the hashtag #ALICEONQUEEN. And it’s free!
