1. Buried Alive Cake
Description

This is no average cake. A man with red-ringed eyes, buried up to his neck with a chunk taken out of his skull. It's the sort of image you'd only expect to see in horror movies and is enough to make some lose their appetite.

3. Haunted House Cake

3. Haunted House Cake
Description

With ghosts flying from windows, a witch fleeing on her broom from the rooftop, and bats and tombstones all around, this is not a place to be walking by after dark. Even the house is alive, with furrowed brows on the front gable, and wainscoting below, for a smile. Created by Pink Cake Box of Denville, N.J., for a 50th birthday celebration, many guests thought the house was simply for decoration, until a slice appeared at their places.

5. Exorcist Cake
Description

Inspired by the character Regan in The Exorcist, this cake was created by Charm City Cakes for a Halloween party. The best part? There is a motor hidden in the cake, slowly spinning the head around, just like in the movie. Totally creepy, totally gross.

11. Pick Your Poison Cupcake

When tempted with a spread of sweet treats of all kinds, isn't that exactly the phrase that goes through one's mind? But when topped with a drowning creature and a drizzle of blood around the frosting, picking your poison takes on an all new meaning.

Who knew that, when stacked, marshmallows could make a fitting stand-in for these fleeting figures? Plus, they are easy to make. Using toothpicks, stack marshmallows on top of each other, then make a face with chocolate-flavored decorating gel.
