Corpse Bride Cake Tutorial

Corpse Bride CakeMy mind, it is blown.

Heather of Sprinkle Bakes has applied her fine arts background to dessert-making, and the results are spectacular. She’s a fan of Tim Burton’s animation, so this year she made a Corpse Bride cake for Halloween. She’s also been kind enough to provide a highly-detailed tutorial, and she breaks the steps down so well that the project almost seems do-able by mere mortals. I love all of the little details, such as the cake interior matching the color of the bride’s hair.

She’s got loads of other tutorials as well; last year she did a Frankenweenie cake (with a bright-green interior), and there are several which are technically not supposed to be spooky but could easily be adapted. Her Matcha-Almond Layer Cake with Meringue Mushrooms, for instance, is a bilious green which evokes a mossy graveyard overgrown with toadstools.

Even if you aren’t interested in making a cake, the same instructions could be used for sculpting the Corpse Bride and Sparky from polymer clay. The Bride’s head would make a cute brooch.

She also has a book of her recipes available, which would be a great gift for an artistic baker.
