If Morticia Addams was into baking, this is what her Instagram would look like.

Meet Christine McConnell, a gothic baker from LA with a skill for creating grotesque, ultra-realistic cakes.

The perfect antidote to saccharine swirl cupcakes in pastel-perfect tones, Christine creates brilliantly subversive images that dare you to eat them.

She, meanwhile, manages to be always immaculately dressed in glam 50s dresses and pinafores while relishing the deliciously dark twist she adds to everything she creates and puts on her Instagram, which now has over 144k followers.

These Waffle Cone Cakes don’t look like they want to be eaten…

Christine originally trained as a hair and make-up artist, but taught herself to bake watching YouTube videos.

She manages to create astonishingly realistic looking cakes.

Some of which you wouldn’t really want to eat..

And some are just downright terrifying…

It’s no wonder she names her idols as Tim Burton, Vincent Price, Alfred Hitchcock, and Paula Deen.

(not a Mary Berry or Delia in sight).

This little guy is made from a rather delicious sounding caramel pecan turtle cake…

And last but not least, Christine’s take on a pineapple upside-down cake.

More tropical than scary, but still very cool.
