Spookily delicious Halloween wedding cakes

By on Oct. 31st


Tribesmaid ShellBelle was a culinary student marrying into a culinary family, so she and her mother-in-law freaking made the cakes you see pictured above. Yes, that is an edible skull cake. Incredible, right? In fact, we have tons of incredible Halloween-themed wedding in our archives — they're all a little bit spooky, a whole lot of impressive, and hopefully as delicious as they are festive.

Keep reading… if you dare! Mwahahahahahaha…

AndiLani uploaded this cake to our Flickr pool and explained, "A Halloween Castle with Ani and Padme on top. By the way: that is the rarest figure produced of Padme… her in the wedding dress."


Here's a Halloween cake tower made by Ohio baker Confections by Amy for Katelyn and Jordan's Hallowedding. The troll toppers are from the bride's extensive troll collection! I'm in love with those little cupcake ghosties.

Halloween cupcake towerHere's another festive Halloween cupcake tower. Bride Amy explains, "Our cupcakes were decorated with pumpkins, leaves, and spiders. (Be careful, black frosting = black teeth.)"


This is the STUNNING cake, made by Texas-based Fantasy Cakes, for Alanna and Nathan's Day of the Dead wedding.

Jessica & David's Wedding 90I like Jessica and David's blood red wedding cake, coupled with the black webbed fabric beneath it, and the delicious candy and donuts surrounding it!

Our Wedding CakeRemember the groom's cake with the bear that's eating his own eye from Denise and Jason's spooktacular wedding? Well this is the tiered wedding cake that went along with it. Denise described it as "a cake collaboration: I made the black tiers and provided the fondant skulls on the white tiers for the baker/designer (Missouri-based Cakes by Combs). It looked wonderful and tasted delicious!"

Wedding 006Here's a Nightmare Before Christmas-themed wedding cake. I love the color scheme and the happy Jack and Sally skull toppers. Also check out the quick Halloween-ifying of the cake cutters — just tie orange and black ribbon around 'em and they look festive and photo ready.

Our cake!
