Kinda creepy but cute! My good friends Beth and John always go all out with a fabulous party with award winning makeup and costuming. The cake was a surprise and they loved it. It also has the perfect toppers for a Halloween wedding cake. I don't sell the "Love Never Dies" toppers but you can search and find them online.

The buttercream recipe that I used for this cake was my simple one with confectioner's sugar. It's quick, easy, stable and people love it. You can control how much sugar you want to add and flavor it with just about any extract. My favorite flavors are vanilla and almond.
