Talented baker Annabel de Vetten from Conjurer's Kitchen creatively made several sumptuous skull cakes that are incredibly intricate and covered in beautiful edible jewels.

At first glance, these eerie bejeweled skull cakes look like they could be a hidden treasure you'd find aboard a haunted pirate ship. The candied skulls are delicately adorned with candied gemstones and an edible gold, lace-like headpiece. The skull itself is carved from gray fondant, marzipan and hard candy. Every detail of this skeletal face looks unbelievably real from the spooky hollowed-out eyes to the crooked, rotting teeth. This opulent candy skull rests on a luxurious red velvet cake pillow that is ready for you to cut into and enjoy a slice. This fancy skull cake would be the perfect centerpiece for a pirate-themed birthday or Halloween party.
