When a wedding cake becomes a crime scene

See also

When cake decorator Natalie Sideserf married her husband, a horror film buff, she knew their wedding cake had to be one-of-a-kind, original, and of course, show both of their talents. She designed a piece of edible art called "Till Death Do Us Part" featuring their heads … their severed heads.

That is correct: their wedding cake was a crime scene, of sorts. Albeit a crime scene that was edible and will make happy headlines (where are you now, Nancy Grace?).

For some it may seem creepy. For others it may seem perfect. No matter; the couple sliced up their fake heads and served the pieces with real smiles. What is that old superstition about keeping a piece of the cake in your refrigerator or under your pillow?

The inside was confetti cake; the icing was cream cheese. An outside layer of white modeling chocolate was used to sculpt the details. This is not just cake but a work of art.

Here is the happy couple as they actually appear, heads attached and no icing. As you can see, both are alive and well. This crime scene was fun without a lurid headline (no pun intended).

The couple's facial features were painstakingly copied, from eye color to hair. The grim expression was added later. He loves horror movies; she is a cake artist. Why not?
