If interested, you can find a bunch of Zoe’s Fancy Cakes’ videos over at the YouTube channel. These include the other two Halloween videos from this year—a Five Nights at Freddy‘s cake and a Nightmare Before Christmas cake topper—as well as lots of past Halloween videos and many other types of cakes ranging from Star Wars characters, to Disney and Pixar characters, to Marvel and DC characters, and many others.
