The lights are on
Over the last few weeks, we've shown you fantastic and colorful cakes inspired by a variety of video games. Today however, we bring you a glimpse of the darker side of themed baking.
You may remember the Angry Birds, Mario Kart, and Wind Waker tiered cakes made by gamer and baker-extraordinaire Tracey Rothwell, owner of the Little Cherry Cake Company. What you may not know, is that Rothwell also runs its sister site, the Black Cherry Cake Company.
Rothwell is a huge fan of the horror genre, and it really shows in her work. Her Black Cherry wares are typically inspired by darker or more mature subjects than those featured on the Little Cherry site, but they're just as amazing. Because Rothwell lives in the UK, even making an order is impossible for some of us. Fortunately, there are pictures to sustain us.
You can still see some of her Black Cherry cakes below, including a not-so-scary one based on a beloved Tim Burton film.

Other cakes made by Tracey Rothwell, both scary or otherwise, are showcased in the gallery section of the Black Cherry Cake Company website. For more pictures, visit the Little Cherry Cake Company's Facebook page, where you can see cakes from both sites.
If you haven't already, check out our previous coverage of praise-worthy Okami cakes, a Resogun-inspired cake, and some of Rothwell's less grisly work.
