SweetBelle Cakes Makes Horror So Tasty

Sunday, March 25, 2018 | Sunday, Bloody, Funday

Nikki Belleperche, owner of SWEETBELLE CAKES of Riverside (sixty miles outside of L.A), is a self-taught cake designer who has created some of the most awe-aspiring delicacies you’ll ever set eyes (and mouth) upon. You might have seen her themed pastries, such as “The Horror Cake” on your social media newsfeeds, a dessert designed to show off Belleperche’s artistic imagination. This marvel of fearsome food pays homage to four icons of horror, namely Jason Voorhees (using his iconic hockey mask covering a green colour tone icing); Freddy Kruger (incorporating a knife glove over top of a green and red colour scheme); Leatherface (a skin-toned icing with stitches and a large chainsaw blade protruding out the middle)/ and Pinhead (skin-coloured icing with pins sticking out of the cake). 


Belleperche recently had the opportunity to show off her newest creation at Los Angeles Screamfest 30th-anniversary screening of A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 with cast in attendance. The film’s stars gathered around the Freddy Kruger “Roach Motel” cake, which features Freddy’s sweater colour scheme (with a rip exposing his victims’ suffering souls), a roach motel and Freddy’s giant leather knife glove coming out from the top of the cake.  Check it out:

Finally, the video of the #NightmareOnElmStreet4 cake you’ve been waiting for!

Of her cakes, Belleperche says: “I usually have a general design in mind that is ran by the customer to ensure they are happy but often times the details are just whatever goes with the flow while I am working.”

Belleperche is not only having a blast making eye-popping horror cakes, she also designs cupcakes, cakepops, gumpaste/fondant flowers, and decorations. So if you’d like to dig into one of your favourite horror icon for a change, get a hold of Nikki at her Etsy shop or on her SweetBelle Cakes Facebook account.

As an avid horror fan and collector of horror merchandise for over 3 decades, I've had the chance to meet and write about some of the finest artists from all over the world. I've written for multiple websites on the art and collectible front. I've lived and nurtured the horror bug within me every since I viewed my first VHS rental of John Carpenter's Halloween.
