This is it: Halloween is almost upon us and while tricks are a given, it’s time we even out our luck with some truly horrific treats. These horror movie-themed sweets are so well done, they easily capture the essence of the movies they represent and come off deliciously devilish.
Freddy Krueger Cookies by Sugar Buff
One, two, these cookies are coming for you. These Freddy Krueger cookies are a little too lifelike for my taste. They look like they’ll actually eat you from the inside out but seeing as how they’re sugary sweet, it’s probably all worth it.
Creature From The Black Lagoon Cupcake by Danielle Henry
I love Instagram because a simple hashtag search can lead you to some fabulous amateur bakers. Yes, my cache is filled with searches for #horrorbaking. This Creature From The Black Lagoon cupcake is awesome because the layered fondant perfectly captures the monster’s familiar features and still looks inviting enough to eat.
Carrie Princess Cake by Not Quite Nigella
Princess doll cakes are all the rage for parties, but come Halloween time why not transform your sweet doll into a living nightmare? This sickeningly sweet Carrie cake is made with edible blood and gumpaste and is the perfect centerpiece for a terrifying Halloween bash.
The Shining Twix by Lou Lou P
Lou Lou P is known for her off the wall sugar creations and there’s something marvelous about this Shining-inspired treat. Obviously there are two candies and obviously they should be The Shining twins. It’s creepy. It’s tasty. It’s perfection. You’ll never look at Twix the same again.
