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!
