Bakers are constantly pushing the boundaries of cake design. With each passing season, the cakes get more elaborate and the details get more intricate. Throw in the added task of making a cake that would make Dracula run away faster than a throwing a bulb of garlic at him would and you have yourself a challenge worth accepting. With limitless options of how to create a cake that makes us shake in our boots, inspiration lurks behind every door.
Some of these cakeries got their inspiration from classic Halloween movies like Nightmare on Elm Street and Tim Burton's The Corpse Bride. Others channeled the eerie allure of Victorian gothic skulls or blood-splattered tiers in their cake designs. No matter if these cakes were at a Halloween party or even at the center of a wedding, we guarantee you'll sleep with one eye open and a fork in hand after taking a peek at these ghoulish sweet treats.

For a couple that can tackle anything, this "Land of the Wed" zombie wedding cake is perfect! We are particularly impressed with the smaller details of bloody intestines sporadically draped on the cake.
There is nothing creepier than something lurking in the shadows. This cake utilizes the creepy concept of silhouettes against a vibrant, Halloween-perfect orange color.
