  1. Oh my goodness! I used to be obsessed with CakeWrecks! You're right those are very different from the usual. Love the second one...I like that tilty kind! The first one is pretty cute, too!

  2. Susan: who could possibly be the first one to stick a knife in either of those cakes?

  3. I can't imagine eating a cake as beautiful as either one of these! But maybe they're just display cakes and are just cardboard underneath all the pretty icing and decorations.

  10. Those are too beautiful to eat, they must be preserved and looked at forever. Woe is he who thinks of eating them.

  14. Pinklea: I looked up the original website of the second cake and apparently it was a wedding cake!

    Martha: thanks, I'll have to look into that one.

    Boliyou: thanks for visiting. I checked out your photoblog - very nice.

    Ed: my thoughts, exactly.

  15. AmyR: do check it out, you may never order a specialty cake again!

    Rosa: I think so, but who would want to ruin it by eating?

    XUP: I guess you would! I agree, the tree would be fun to eat, not least because it looks like chocolate.

    Bill and Lorie: chocolate yes, but the icing looks way to sweet for me.

  16. Nora and Maggie May: they are sculptural masterpieces.

    Sagittarian: I took a course in cake decorating once, and found I din't have a steady enough hand. I am mightily impressed by these.

    Sistertex: I watched that for the first time a couple of weeks ago.

    Mr Nighttime: look away, look away, NOW!

  17. Seems a shame to eat them! Don't think I fancy that dark greeny-blue icing, though!

  18. Lovely and yummy! You might consider reentering one of these to the next Sunday stills. :)

  19. Stunning cakes!!

    Unfortunately Halloween is not celebrated in (formerly) catholic Belgium: we commemorate our loved ones who passed away by massively
    placing flowers on graves Sunday Nov 1st (All Saints Day).

    There have been attempts to import Halloween into the non-English parts of Europe, but most people ignore it and stick to local traditions.

  20. Gilly: can't be any worse than the black of the tree!

    dibear: except that these aren't my photos - I stole them off the internet.

    Peter: thank goodness. really, there is no need for everyone in the world to adopt American holidays and traditions.
