If you’re looking for a creative way to make your birthday cake more frightening, consider making a gothic version of a traditional birthday cake. This spooky design features dark colors and decorations, such as bats and blood. You can even turn a cemetery tombstone into a cake shape to evoke a spooky, ghoulish theme.
A gothic birthday cake can also feature a critter, such as a spider web. While spiders are the most common critters, you can also incorporate other insects. Another unique feature of gothic cakes is the frosting. Unlike other cakes, gothic cakes are usually frosted in black, purple, or dark red.
