Many of you may not know this, but writing for Bloody-Disgusting is a second job for me. I write for the site in my spare time, but for my day job I work in the events industry here in Austin, Texas. I know, it’s two totally different worlds, but it is what it is. I don’t get much of a horror fix when it comes to my day job, but every now and then something special comes along and I get to merge the two together
My husband and I got married back in February and, both of us being horror fans, decided to inject our love of horror into the design of our wedding. We just didn’t know how to do it without getting too theme-y. Then we realized: the cake! The cake you see below is one of our wedding cakes (the toppers are white chocolate-covered strawberries made to look like ghost face since our first date was a trip to see Scream 4). Admittedly, we went a little bit more simplistic with our design, but the intent was there.
While researching cake ideas to give to our baker, I came across a lot of really well-designed horror-themed cakes, so I thought I’d share them with all of you! There’s a lot of creativity out there in the baking world. Some of these are pretty awesome!
This gluten free chocolate cake with an acid green blood buttercream would feel right at home and any children’s birthday party! David Arsenault caters to every horror fan. Just check out his Necronomicon cake!
Unfortunately you aren’t able to manipulate this cake in any way, but it’s still a pretty nifty ode to Clive Barker’s Hellraiser!
San Francisco-based artist Vicky Knoop spent over 16 hours creating this cake, which is a pretty cool replica of the creature from John Carpenter’s 1982 masterpiece.
