Halloween-themed sweets at Sucreries

Earlier this year, near the end of summer, the pastry chef Tweeted that they couldn't wait for the Halloween season. Allowing for all kinds of creative possibilities combining spooky, scary, and cute elements, it's easy to understand why the season is appealing, and Sucreries takes full advantage of it.

For example, take a look at these cakes, called 野ざらし nozarashi, meaning "skull." These cakes, which aren't only sold at Halloween, feature a skull, a flower, and Sotoba tablets inscribed with a semblance of Sanskrit, as seen on Buddhist graves. Inside, you'll find caramelized apples enveloped in a refreshing green apple mousse.

If you just want a small bite in a Halloween theme, you can pick up one of these chocolate lollipops with skulls and faces reminiscent of Munch's "The Scream."

Are you fan of creepy crawlies? Look no further than this dessert, aptly named 蟲の飼育セット mushi no shi'iku setto, or "insect farming set." The chocolate creatures are resting on a bed of cassis and passion fruit-mango flavored gimauve (French marshmallows).

If you're in the mood for something more macabre and something which you can enjoy even up to Christmas, how about these ジングル〝ヘル〟 jinguru heru ("Jingle 'Hell'") cakes, complete with evil gnomes hacking up the skeletal remains of their victims with their axes and spilling their blood?
