I got to do a Jack Skellington and Sally cake for Sophia’s 5th birthday last weekend… so fun (and fitting) for this time of year!

If you’re not up on your Tim Burton movies, Jack and Sally were the stars of “The Nightmare Before Christmas” movie which came out 25 years ago–hard to believe!  Nice to see kids are still discovering this fun, unique holiday classic 🙂

This was a 10″ pumpkin latte cake (so yummy for this time of year!) iced with pale purple-tinted vanilla buttercream.  All of the details were made from fondant which I let dry for a couple of days to give it some strength.

The Jack/Sally heart was the most difficult to get right, always hard to duplicate an image with layers of fondant.  Loved the little fondant pumpkins!

Thanks for picking such a FUN theme for your birthday, Sophia….it was a pleasure making your cake!!
