This lives up to the phrase “window-licker”. I never would have noticed this if these girls passing by hadn’t loudly gasped about it and I’m glad they did. We were walking to the Verona to catch Hunting And Gathering (Ensemble, C’est Tout) – and to kill two foodie observationss with one stone – my favourite scene in the film is two seconds long, when Audrey Tautou adds a decorative flourish to an empty plate by drawing an edible duck on it.
Back to the wedding cake though – as you may have worked out, the lavish design features the characters from the Tim Burton film, Corpse Bride. I especially like that they’re posing on layers of skulls and bones. Perfect for a gothic wedding. This clever creation was in the window display of a store called Sweet Art in Paddington. They also had cakes in the shape of designer handbags, Mater from the film Cars, a bathtub of characters from The Simpsons and also The Incredibles. I notice on their website that they do a cake in the form of a jade Buddha. As Homer would say, sacrilicious.
