Gobs of Skull Cakes

One of my favorite blogs, Cake Wrecks, did a post last week called The Undead Wed that featured a bunch of amazing skull wedding cakes. This sent me off on a frenzy of searching for more skull cakes, wedding, birthday or otherwise. From now on I only want skull cakes for my birthday and most definitely a skull wedding cake. In no particular order...

  1. Wow, these cakes are awesome! I wonder why would any of these be on Cake Wrecks because they all rule even if they are a bit unusual. Thanks for the great post!

  2. Ah, I neglected to mention that Cake Wrecks post non-wrecky cakes on Sundays and these cakes were NOT wrecks. However, if you read the comments for that post you'll see that plenty of people are weirded out that someone would actually choose a skull cake for their wedding. Funny stuff!

  3. Wow! Excellent excellent cakes. Too cool.

  4. and best of all they look yummy.

  5. This is a wonderful collection of cakes. So many different styles and influences. I love them all and I would happily devour them one by one.

    I'm quite inspired by this. I've got a party coming in two weeks and this sort of macabre fare would be perfect for the occasion.
