Fall lovers will be thrilled as this treat includes many delightful fall spices. The outside of the cake is so adorable, as it looks like a real orange pumpkin. However, if you love the white ones, you can use white food coloring. On the other hand, the inside is no less than satisfactory because it's filled with cream cheese frosting. So yum!

9. Spider Web Halloween Cake

The chocolate spider rules this cake

This Spider Web Cake will surely steal the show at your Halloween party, so you won't make a mistake by serving it. This cake is so rich with chocolate, as its filling has the black one, while the white one serves as a decoration for a spider web. Also, there's the fudge buttercream topping.

Nonetheless, you'll need candy melts for the chocolate bats since that's a substitute that could melt and harden quickly. 

When you start creating bats, we suggest putting them onto the parchment paper, so you can pick them easier after they've hardened. The orange color, which gradually transforms into white, is made of creamy Italian meringue buttercream and food color. Still, there's always an option to cover it with pumpkin buttercream. The moist texture makes this cake easy to bite.
