Top 10 Day of the Dead Halloween Cakes

Creep it real with these incredible Day of the Dead cakes.

Whether you’re the kind of person to get up at the crack of dawn to get into your costume for the day, or the type that’s mainly in it for the themed food (us), there’s no denying that halloween is a whole lot of fun!

That’s especially represented with the Mexican holiday of Day of the Dead. Not actually marked on halloween, but November 2nd, the iconography of the day has taken on a life of its own.

With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite Day of the Dead cakes ahead of this spook season. Get inspired, get colourful and get cake decorating!
