We’re used to seeing yummy cakes, but The Bake King (real name Ben Cullen) makes some real masterpieces.

You can see his work on Facebook and Instagram. Though he focuses on a variety of subjects, we chose to feature his scariest cakes. But don’t worry, they’re still delicious!

Cullen has some serious baking and artistic skills. Be careful, some of these look a bit scary depending on where you are.

10. What An Awesome Skull!

We really feel the steampunk/pirate vibes here!

1 WEEK Until @thecakeshows!!! So I’ll continue my story… after the first show I attended where I got bronze and the second when I got silver…. I entered Birmingham November of the same year 2015 with this mechanical skull cake…. each time I had taken on board everything I had learnt; advice given, new techniques, exactly what the judges looked for, and tips picked up at the show… (I bought an airbrush πŸ‘€ @spectrumflow ) …And I got my first GOLD!!! It was the most amazing feeling seeing that gold card there next to my piece! And I’d achieved what I set out to do in that year πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» to anyone entering the show next week… make sure you enjoy it completely.. and whatever the outcome you should set yourself goals; and then absolutely smash them to bits 😎πŸ’ͺ🏻 β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #cake #cakeart #cakes #cakestagram #insta #instacake #thebakeking #bakeking #cakeboss #chester #uk #chocolate #cakemaking #cakedecorating #instagood #food #extremecakemakers #art #cakeart #sweet #cakeinternational #skull #skullcake

What did you think of Cullen’s cakes? Some of these look super-realistic and a little scary.

For some people baking a regular cake is tough, but Cullen shows you can specialize in something ordinary and make it awesome.
