I searched online for cakes that appealed to me and provided pictures to SIL-C and set her loose. I wanted the topsy-turvy style, even though they're very trendy right now (I generally eschew trendy stuff), a general color scheme and Halloweeny accents. We settled on mainly chocolate cake, with the middle section being cherry chip (a family favorite). She seriously came through, with a beautiful piece of edible art that was yummy, too.
Another angle, so you can see the giant spider on top of the cake. There were candy eyes and pumpkins around the trees (also edible) . Plastic spiders, bats, ghosts, cats and pumpkins completed the look. Oh, and the little skulls? They're beads.
I just love the details: the coordinating cake-board (sitting on one of my cake stands), with the spiderweb "doily."
Mid-party status. That's a lot of layers!!
