Tim Burton Themed Cupcake Contest

I recently joined a group on Facebook called Bake Your Cupcake Off. Once a month a contest is hosted, this month the theme was Tim Burton. My first instinct was to go with Alice in Wonderland, but then I thought so many people would choose that one as well. So I started listing the movies and trying to narrow it down to one. After talking to my nine year old son, I might add here that he is brilliant :), he tells me "Mom, the theme is Tim Burton, not a specific movie, so just do a cupcake for each of the movies you have listed." BRILLIANT!!! I tell you.

I began to make a list of the movies and which elements from the movies would make the cupcakes the most recognizable. That's when I realized that I have not seen as many Tim Burton films as I thought I had. I know which ones are the most popular or recognizable, but I have not seen them. So I created 12 cupcakes themed to Tim Burton and the movies he creates. Enjoy!

From the Left: Edward Scissorhands, Planet of the Apes, Alice in Wonderland (represented in two cupcakes), Sleepy Hallow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, James and the Giant Peach, Nightmare Before Christmas, Sweeny Todd
I am very excited how these turned out and can not wait for next months theme!!
