Cakenweenie does DARK SHADOWS

CAKENWEENIE asked 100 artists to create cakes in honor of TIM BURTON's 55th birthday. Not sure what "100" has to do with "55," but whatever ... good work is good work.

The entries included Batman, Beetlejuice and, of course, characters from last year's DARK SHADOWS feature. SHAWNA McGREEVY of McGreevy Cakes opted for JULIA HOFFMAN, pictured right. "I cut Julia’s head, hair and torso from fondant and laid those pieces on top of an airbrushed background of fondant," she says. "I then used food gel pens, airbrush food coloring liquid, and petal dusts to ‘paint’ the fondant pieces and bring Julia to life. I’ve captured the process on video as a tutorial for how to create a fondant painting."

In Italy, KARLA CHUMPITAZ of Sweet K crafted a 10-inch tall BARNABAS COLLINS (top) made from modelling sugarpaste and handpainted with color dust.
