During Halloween time, it’s always right to make a delicious cake that just happens to look absolutely disgusting. I found a ton of cakes that fall under this category trying to find one to make myself.

This is one of my favorite cakes, so much so that we wrote a full article about how to make it! Click here to learn how to do it!

Cockroach Cake


I don’t know about you, but cockroaches terrify me. They’re disgusting, kind of huge for bugs, and apparently could survive nuclear war. No thank you.

That’s why they make the perfect Halloween cake. Gross, right?

Heart Cake


Eat your heart out just got a whole new meaning. This realistic heart cake is highly detailed and absolutely gorgeous, ya know, if it doesn’t freak you out or anything.

Pennywise Cake

I haven’t met a single person who isn’t at least a little creeped out by IT‘s Pennywise the clown. If you want to terrify everyone, guaranteed, then this is the cake for you.

Slime Monster Cake

This cake isn’t nearly as terrifying as a lot of the others, but it will definitely still make a statement, and is (probably) more kid friendly!

Cute Pumpkin Cake

Okay, I couldn’t leave you guys hanging and give you absolutely no cakes that look just as decent on the outside as they do on the inside.

This cake is festive, but won’t terrify everyone. You’re welcome.

Face Cake


Okay, now here’s something horrifying. Don’t worry, no one was harmed in the making of this cake… or were they?
