An Animated Zoetrope Cake Inspired by Tim Burton

I first fell in love with Tim Burton when I got my hands on The Nightmare Before Christmas.  And I love cake.  What could be better than an edible zoetrope (say what?) cake?  Clearly not much.

Alexandre Dubosc is an artist and apparently quite a powerhouse in the edible zoetrope field.  Who knew there was such a thing?  What the hell is a zoetrope? – I hear you asking.  It’s something that simulates movement by flashing static pictures.  Like a flip book.  Dubosc recently created The Caketrope of Burton’s Team.  It’s an animated cake celebrating the works of Tim Burton. How many Burton references can you pick out.  I absolutely love this thing.  Check out the video below.
