We love an October wedding as much as the next, but some couples are taking it to a whole new level with Halloween-themed wedding cakes. It’s not just creepy cakes, some couples are choosing a Halloween theme for the entire wedding ceremony. Where more traditional weddings lean into romance, others take a different approach and use the event to express the couples’ personalities.
For a more laid-back wedding that has tons of character, consider an alternative theme like Halloween. It will keep your guests talking and allow for a less buttoned-up affair. The best part of any Halloween wedding has got to be the treats and you can have a blast with the cake! Here are 15 of our favorite Halloween wedding cakes. Even if they’re not your cup of tea, you have to admire the creativity.
A Deep Red Wedding Cake
For a Dia de los Muertos inspired wedding cake, go red! Look at the black, lacey icing work on this sinful stunner. The blood-red roses make this cake equal parts romantic and morbid.
Love Me to the Bone Cake
Prove that you love them to the marrow with this black and white wedding cake. It’s topped with some skeletal lovers and black roses for gothic flare.

Simply Spiderwebs Cake
Here’s another simple, but stunning, black and white wedding cake. The delicately iced spiderwebs look as if they’ve been spun by an actual black widow. But, no talk of widows on the special day.
The Monsters of Frankenstein Cake
With Frankenstein’s monster and the Bride of Frankenstein herself on top, we couldn’t think of a more apt Halloween Cake theme. The silhouette of a gnarly tree on the cake is thrilling as well.
Blood and Brains Cake
Nothing says, ‘I love you’ like the medulla oblongata. For fans of gore, this bloody Halloween cake will be a hit. How many bad brain jokes will that weird uncle make about this one?

This dark, airbrushed wedding cake has the pallor of death. The iced white flowers help soften the design of this otherwise bone-chilling confection.

Revelers beware of the black death cake. This creepy cake is black on black with pops of red roses. The white skull cake topper wishes you and yours well.
Sweet Skulls Cake
Look at the amazing sugar skulls that decorate this triple-tiered cake. The dripping black and intricate icing work is truly incredible.
