A Zombie Wedding Cake

Have we got a Halloween treat for you: one of the scariest (and coolest) wedding cakes we’ve ever seen.

Since today is Halloween, we thought we’d share a wedding cake that’s as creepy as it is creative. Falls Church couple Ann and Brian are zombie-movie fans (Dawn of the Dead, 28 Days Later, and Zombieland are some of their recent favorites), so when it came time to choose the cake for their September 2011 wedding at the Hotel Monaco, they asked Leslie Goldman Poyourow of Fancy Cakes by Leslie in Bethesda to create—you guessed it—a zombie wedding cake, featuring an axe-wielding bride, a chainsaw-carrying groom, and various undead creatures scaling the four-tiered confection.

According to Brian, he and Ann thought it would be a “fun and fitting homage to our love of all things zombie. Because, as my new wife says, ‘If you can’t have fun with a wedding cake, you’re taking yourself too seriously!’”

We couldn’t agree more. (More close-up shots of this amazing cake after the jump):
