5 Gory Halloween Cakes To Delight And Disgust

If you're really out to send shivers down your guests' spines this Halloween, take inspiration from these five gruesome but awe-inspiring cakes. Incredible attention to all the gory details make these a far cry from pumpkins and witches' hats. Fondant and chocolate plastique are perfect for covering for cakes such as these as they provide an easily modelled, blank canvas on which to unleash your dark side...

1. Severed Foot Cake by Milli's Kitchen, Milli Taylor

If you're looking to make your guests squirm, this gruesome severed foot cake will certainly do the trick. Yet if they manage to get their head around trying a bit, they'll surely be delighted! Milli Taylor uses a squidgy chocolate cake as the base serving it with vanilla ice cream, hot salted caramel sauce, strawberry jelly worms and chocolate soil. A foot never tasted so good!

Of all the severed head cakes on the Internet, this surely has to be the most horrifying!

With its incredible attention to detail it's not surprising this cake took over 200 hours to make.
