Wedding Cakes of the Week: April 9th – with a Tim Burton theme!

April 9, 2013

This week something “completely different”, or is it?  After all, these days, when it come’s your wedding “anything goes”!

Like most things in life, in recent years weddings have moved on from the very traditional affair of “yesteryear” and nowadays all (or most) of the elements of the day are tailored to reflect the personalities and interests of the happy couple.  So “goodbye” to the traditional white royal iced fruit cake and “hello” to whatever your little hearts desire (including the traditional white royal iced fruit cake if that is what floats your boat!).

So, this week we have not 1, but 2 Wedding Cakes of the Week – both themed around Tim Burton films.

First up… “The Corpse Wedding Cake” by Verusca Walker.

Corpse Wedding Cake

This cake is based on the 2005 Tim Burton film “The Corpse Bride” and I think you’ll agree it is a stunning piece of work.  The talented sugar artist behind this design is Verusca Walker – a Brazilian currently living in Australia.  Learn more about Verusca and see more of her outstanding work at her website here.

Next we have “The Nightmare Before Christmas” Wedding Cake from Little Cherry Cake Company.

Night Before Christmas Wedding CakeThis time the film is the 1993 Tim Burton film “Nightmare Before Christmas”.  I particularly love how this cake is styled with a matching black cake stand – which is such an important detail that gives the cake an even more professional look.   The Little Cherry Cake Company is run by Tracey Rothwell in Manchester.   Tracey has a beautiful website… why not take a look and prepare to be amazed!  This wedding cake can be seen with its proud bride on Tracey’s sister website Black Cherry in the “Awesome Dudes” gallery.

What do you think of these designs…? Have you been to a wedding where there has been a cake in this style – and what would Granny say??
