Sugar Spooks is an annual cake collaboration where cake decorators have fun making spooky cakes. They range from mild to extremely intense. To see all of the cakes, please visit Sugar Spooks.
This Fabulous Maleficent Cake was made by Shawna McGreevy of McGreevy Cakes. She titled it “Mistress of All Good.” Maleficent was hand painted onto the fondant cake canvas. There are Wonderful tutorials on her site of how to she painted Maleficent and how she made the gum paste roses.

This Marvelous Popeye Cake called “Century of Spinach” was made by Avalon Yarnes of Avalon Cakes. She did Popeye as if he were real, alive, and aging well due to all of the spinach that he ate. The cake board looks like a wood grained floor.
This Terrific Red Riding Hood Cake was made by Good Gracious Cakes. This is a spooky Red Riding Hood patterned in the style of Hitchcock suspense. She is dressed in all red and has red roses around her. Her face and hands cannot be seen because they are totally hidden by her red hood and cape. It is ironic that Red Riding Hood is sitting on top of this particular grave. The Latin words ‘Magno et Malo Lupo’ are written on the tombstone. It is translated ‘The Big Bad Wolf.’
Verusca Walker made this Fabulous Marie Antoinette and titled it “Scary Antoinette.” This cake transforms from one photo to the next to a much scarier vampire version of Marie Antoinette.
