You don’t need to make a cake that resembles an elaborate 3D model of a pumpkin to enjoy Halloween. You can choose a minimalistic pastry so you don’t have to struggle to cut it. In any case, a cake is just a cake.
But again, if this is a list of fun and original Halloween food, so we should keep it like that. And if you want something that reads “fun and original”, this cake most definitely should be part of this list.
