Step inside the gothic bake queen's Halloween home makeover

Christine McConnell is the queen of transforming ordinary cakes and pastries into gloriously gruesome and subversive bakes.

(Just take a look at her Tim Burton and Alien inspired menu.)

Now the internet sensation has lent her hands to interior design and the results are terrifyingly brilliant, just in time for Halloween.

The Los Angeles-based photographer has transformed her parents' home into an giant monster, complete with pointy fangs and menacing giant eyeballs to watch trick-or-treaters as they pass by.

McConnell assures her fans the house isn't photoshopped and she's shared a series of behind-the-scenes photos on social media to prove it. 

They show her using foam boards, paint and additional supplies to bring the building to life. 

The artist waited “till the sun cast a shadow lining up with the walkway” to take the perfect photograph although she did admit “it was tricky”.

Of course, it wouldn't be right if McConnell didn't whip up a few frightening foods for Hallow's Eve as well.

This year, she's made an assortment of treats to match the house: peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate named 'Beelzebub Buckeyes' and brownies with more watchful eyes. 

Take a look at her bakes below and follow her work on Facebook.
