She's the doyenne of cake noir; cakes that are super creepy, with a healthy dose of fantasy and Stepford thrown in for good measure.

Christine McConnell is a US cake and food artisan specialising in dark themes. The work of icons such as Alfred Hitchcock, Vincent Price and Tim Burton inspire McConnell's work and she stars in many of the photos accompanying her food.

Posed and preened as beautifully as a Stepford Wife, her carefully-crafted image is all part of the visual appeal of the work.

McConnell has just released her latest cookbook Deceptive Desserts: A Lady's Guide to Baking Bad! so if you want to bake creepy things in your kitchen, it's your go-to guide.
