Bakery window, Nightmare Before Christmas display

Neighborhood bakery had big, sweeping, exuberant foundant and cardboard(?) window display.
Great attention to detail.

Funnily, names of other bakeries appeared on tombstones.
Division Avenue reflected.

Previous displays featured disturbing batchelor party cake(?)
 consisting of headless, armless, legless female torso in corset.

Under previous ownership, my favorite Christmas cake on display was one that resembled a tree trunk with concentric rings that were formed as the cake was rotated on a spit while it baked. You ordered by weight and a portion would be sliced off for you. Very eggy and pleasantly spongy.

Wisteria and Clement were ready to crawl inside and play in the tempting diorama.
