Please give a warm TDK welcome to our Star Kit, Little Mama. She is 11 years old from Manchester, New Hampshire.
Little Mama was a stray in Sanford, Maine for a year or two, then lived with my late brother for 7 years, then with me for the last 2 years. She is so sweet and adorable
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.)
(By Sara Giustizieri)
Excellent hand painting and figure sculpts so spot-on they could be collectible figures.
And everyone's favorite:
The Nightmare Before Christmas:
(By Dina Cimarusti Cakes)
This one has it all: the swirls, the bathtub, Oogie Boogie - I even see Zero!
(By Pucky Cakes)
Love that Sally gets her own cake here - and what IS that adorable bat/cat creature she's holding?
'Cuz I want one.
There are tons of Jack & Sally wedding cakes out there, but these two in particular caught my eye:
(By That Baking Girl)
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.
(By Splendor Cakes)
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:
(Also by Sara Giustizieri)
Edward! Yay! Plus those vivid jewel tones look amazing behind all the figure sculpts.
(By Queen City Bake Shop)
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?

Please give a huge paws up to our Caturday Star kit, Percy. He is 8 weeks old from Enterprise, Alabama.
We decided to add a boy kitten back into our home (w/ 2 older female cats) after losing the most gorgeous, one-eyed, male Calico rescue EVER. After only 5 years he died from a congenital heart defect and I was absolutely crushed! He was my buddy! I decided then that I wasn’t going to adopt any more cats because it just hurt so much. I’m used to my cats living for 15 plus years and thought we’d grow old together.
My adult kids convinced me to adopt after many months and one of my daughters found this little boy. He is a sweet, laid-back, red Manx/American bobtail mix with a cute, short, hook of a tail. His mother abandoned her litter after 4 weeks. The first night I found that he’d made his way up onto my bed and was sleeping right next to my face. After just one day he started following me everywhere like a puppy might! I’m so glad we adopted him; I think we needed each other.
I don't even know where to begin with this trash. Maybe with how the trailer is done in the style of Woody Allen? https://t.co/J3VJjgbMfF— Melissa McEwan (@Shakestweetz) October 20, 2017
I mean it wouldn't be the worst timing if it means we finally talk about the open secret that Louis CK is a predator https://t.co/I9T802L50G— Melissa McEwan (@Shakestweetz) October 20, 2017
Or, you know, we could wait until dozens of women come forward, like with Cosby, Weinstein, etc., and then all act shocked about it.— Melissa McEwan (@Shakestweetz) October 20, 2017
Later, we can be appalled at this film like combing through Cosby's old bits or Woody Allen's films & "noticing" the red flags (admissions).— Melissa McEwan (@Shakestweetz) October 20, 2017
