Spooky Halloween-inspired Cakes

Consider having these ‘twisted’ delights to add that creepy feel to your home for Halloween.

Forget trick or treat; this year, why not plan a fun Halloween party with your best friends? For dessert, ditch the candy and go for a homemade ‘Spooky Spiderweb’ cake that you and your girls can whip up together. They are fun to bake and pretty easy too! Just frost your cake as you would normally and go crazy with icing or even better, melted marshmallows (for that extra web-like effect).


The concept was first developed by blogger Carrie Sellman from The Cake Blog. Her version is elegantly frosted with a creepy twist!

Baker and TV personality Yolanda Gampp put her own ghoulish twist on the cobweb cake. You can check out the full video tutorial below:
