Sugar Spooks are BACK!

Halloween is one of my very favorite holidays of the year. In fact, I’ve already attended a few parties, dressed up in my spooky finest, and decorated enough pumpkin cookies to feed an army! (I may have eaten enough of them too- but I digress). As a cake artist, nothing quite says “HALLOWEEN is here” like the unveiling of the incredible, sugar spooks collaboration. Back with their fourth incarnation, this group of horror-obsessed sugar nerds, led by Avalon Yarnes, have pulled out all the stops to give you a “sweet-tacular” fright. Here’s a run-down of some of our favorites.

Hothell by Cake Revol

Hothell by Cake Revol

Cake Revol created this tongue-in-cheek, Hothell. The cake is actually an e-motion cake, with the flames fully animated- you have to check out the video here to full appreciate the workmanship of this awesome design.

Pinhead Bunny by Theresa Taubrich

Pinhead Bunny by Theresa Taubrich

Thersa Taubrich of Crazy Sweets by Theresa Taubrich created this fully edible, Pinhead bunny cake. This cake is both adorably cute and horrifyingly scary all at the same time.

The demon Barber - Sweeney Todd by Jenny Kennedy

The demon Barber – Sweeney Todd by Jenny Kennedy

Sculpted with amazing realism this sugar-art piece by Jenny Kennedy of Jenny’s Haute Cakes captured the “brooding” and almost demonic expression of Johnny Depp as Sweeney Todd. The sleeves are actually wafer paper!!

bye-bye-bluto

Bye Bye Bluto by Avalon Yarnes

Collaboration organizer Avalon Yarnes brings back her infamous Popeye cake to create this blackly-comic cake collection. Avalon crafted Popeyes’ long-time love, Olive Oyl and, of course, the scene wouldn’t be complete without Bluto (in severed head form).

Squid Contessa by Liz Marek

Squid Contessa by Liz Marek

Liz Marek of Sugar Geek Show created this beautiful, whimsical, and slightly unnerving Squid Contessa Sugar Sculpture. We especially love her Madussa-esque tentacles.

Fresh Meat Burger by Joyce Marcellus

Fresh Meat Burger by Joyce Marcellus

Bringing the “creep factor” is this nauseatingly-brilliant and realistic ‘fresh meat’ burger cake by Joyce Marcellus of theĀ Toxic Sweets Shop. We can’t believe just how stunningly realistic and gross this burger cake is.

The Adams Family Fight by Carla Puig

The Adams Family Fight by Carla Puig

Last but by no means least is this frightful Wednesday Adams cake. Sculpted by the very talented Carla Puig the cake features a bloodied Thing, resting on the shoulder of a rather battered Wednesday. We particularly love the intricate patterning of her dress and the porcelain quality of her skin.
