Dainty and demure layer cakes and cookies are so cliché. Occasionally you want a baked good with a little more edge. Something that’s a little bit sugary, and a little bit spooky. After all, you’re a complex individual — why shouldn’t you have some desserts to match? Besides, it’s way more fun to cross over to the dark side every now and then.

Here are some delectable desserts that are certainly not for the faint of heart. They may taste sweet, but they’ve got a bit of a bite. Fair warning: they definitely might be haunted.

And yes, Tim Burton would definitely approve of these morbid treats.
