Is there any time of the year more suited to Tim Burton cakes?
I THINK NOT.
So here are my new favorites inspired by some of Burton's spookier films.
We're starting off with a bang and a scream, because LOOK AT THIS CAKE. The sandworms! The waiting room! And the top with the model set's grave scene? Perfection.
It took me a good 15 seconds to find Beetlejuice, btw. See him? NO HINTS!

1) I can't believe this is cake.
2) Emily looks dead sexy.
See what I did there?
Alice in Wonderland:
All the other Alice cakes can just pack up, you guys. WE'RE DONE HERE.
(Sooo many stunning details, but look at the stack of floating teacups! That and the painted roses are my favorite bits. Plus Cheshire's eyes.)

And everyone's favorite:

'Cuz I want one.
There are tons of Jack & Sally wedding cakes out there, but these two in particular caught my eye:

The chalkboard tier has the famous "meant to be" quote from the movie. I love the swirly roses, and those colors! Plus the window frame topper is a genius design.

I really fell for the contrast on this one: that vivid pink and orange and lace topper with the dark sepia tones on the bottom is just... WORKING. You know? And I love the hand painted art of Jack and Sally in Dia de los Muertos face paint - a fun twist which helps explain the brighter colors.
And now, a few Sweets that bring all kinds of Burton characters together:

Edward! Yay! Plus those vivid jewel tones look amazing behind all the figure sculpts.

How cool is this?! The TV sets alone would make this a masterpiece, but then there are scenes from Nightmare, Frankenweenie, and Alice inside them!
And, you guys, they even light up:
Happy Sunday, everyone! Now, who wants to go watch some movies?
