13 Creepy Cakes Slideshow
1. Buried Alive Cake
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.
2. Arm (and Axe) Cake
It's the perfect finish to a Halloween-themed dinner — a severed appendage, served along with the bloody weapon. Created by Duff Goldman of Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, Md.
3. Haunted House Cake
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.
4. Eyeball Cake
Hosting a haunted house party of your own, or serving up a menu of gross, maybe even deadly dishes? Don't forget a cauldron of this steamy eyeball soup.
5. Exorcist Cake
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.
6. Skull Cake
Hosting a Halloween party this year? Bake a three-dimensional skull cake just like this. All you need is a specially designed pan.
7. Ghostly Bride Cake
Dressed all in white, this is one bridezilla you would not want to be near on her wedding day.
8. Angry Monster Cake
Part man, part animal, and with a stomach full of human remains? And to celebrate a wedding, nonetheless! Inspired by a design spotted on Food Network, the soon-to-be-married couple commissioned Pink Cake Box to create this gruesome design just for their Halloween-themed party.
9. Death by Chocolate Cake
Ever wonder what happens when you love the rich, sweet flavor of chocolate just a bit too much? You get your fingers lopped off the next time you reach into that bag of peanut M&M's or Dove Promises. See?
10. Nightmare on Elm Street Cake
It's some teens' worst nightmare when they go to bed — a visit from none other than Freddy Krueger himself, yet in cake form.
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.
12. Ghost Village Cake
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.
13. Yip Yip Martian Cupcakes
Creepy cupcakes inspired by the Sesame Street figures. Can you hear them now? Yip-yip-yip-yip Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
