Nightmare Before Christmas wedding

Wedding Nightmare Before ChristmasUber cool couple Christina and Kristin wanted a wedding cake with the Nightmare Before Christmas theme. It had to feed 150 rockin’ guests. Other than that, I could do what I wanted.
I decided on a black and white theme because it seemed elegant for a wedding and added red gumpaste roses to give the cake some pop.
Ooh wee! It worked. The bride wore white, the bridesmaids were bedecked in red and all the decorations under the tent were red and white. The cake fit in perfectly!
And the cake gods smiled that day. The week had featured 35C with high humidity making it feel like the mid-40s C (100+F). Lucky me. The day before the wedding, when I was icing the cake, the weather changed to the 22C and clouds.
The cake was vanilla bean separated by a citrus buttercream. Apparently, it was a big hit.
