Goth Food - Amazing Gothic Cakes

On our travels around the internet, we've come across some of the most extraordinary gothic cakes you're ever likely to see. The creativity and work involved is absolutely incredible and these cakes are really stunning works of sculptural art in their own right. As you might expect, lots of these cakes feature skulls in either 2D or 3D form and for a goth themed wedding, they are often partnered with roses resulting in a very romantic centrepiece.

Tim Burton seems to inspire many a gothic wedding cake, which, given the wonderful imagery in his films, is no surprise. The Corpse Bride is obviously a favourite and if you look at the pictures below, you can see some really good examples of this. However, one of the cakes has managed to combine Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland and The Nightmare Before Christmas with Jack Skellington all in one! Amazing.

As you can imagine, to commission one of these cakes is extremely expensive. But if you can bake and you have a vision, it's possible to create your own. If it's for a very special occasion like a wedding, it's probably best to practice lots before the big day and your initial idea may very well change along the way as is the case with lots of art. And this, after all, is what it is, a masterpiece of edible art.
