Just in time for Halloween, I put together a roundup of my favorite All Hallows' Eve-themed wedding cakes and cake toppers—they're certainly spooky but still chic and elegant enough to be wedding-appropriate. This amazing Nightmare Before Christmas-inspired cake (above) was created by The Sweetest Day, a bakery in Nashville, TN, and featured fondant-covered tiers decorated with spiderwebs and stitching details done using edible markers. The bride provided the Jack Skellington and Sally figurines, which were displayed in front of a giant moon cut from orange fondant.

Tim Burton's other delightfully macabre fairy tale Corpse Bride is the inspiration for this three-tier wedding cake (above left) by Sweet Art, a bakery in Sydney, Australia. Somehow, skulls and bones look whimsical and sweet when they're painted in pastel shades of yellow, baby blue, and pink, don't you think? And the jet-black hue of the topsy-turvy cake (right) by Dahlia's Custom Cakes adds a glamorous touch to counter the ghoulish motifs and jack-o'-lanterns.

For a more subtle nod to Halloween, top a simply frosted cake with one of these quirky cake toppers. Both the Frankenstein couple and zombie bride and groom cake toppers are handpainted wooden peg dolls that also make a great keepsake after the wedding. Happy Halloween! —Heather Lee
