Here's a pastry that has too much technical merit to be so callously consumed. Confectionary sculptor Alexandre Dubosc has created this edible zoetrope as a tribute to the oeuvre of Tim Burton. Watch as monster eyeballs morph into Jack Skellington and Batman's insignia. If all cakes were this aesthetically thrilling, we'd always skip dessert.
