With 25 killer cupcake recipes, Lily Vanilli will teach you how to bake and decorate some frighteningly good cakes!
After being banished for so long to the land of the pretty and identical, the domestic and the twee, cupcakes are biting back. Here, Lily Vanilli shows how you can take inspiration from anywhereâ€”insects, roadkill, zombiesâ€”and recreate it in cake, with a delicious result. Get creative with your tasty toppings, edible sculptures, and natural ingredients with this introduction to making cakes look weird, ugly and perfect for Halloween. Give guests a shock with revoltingly realistic Marzipan Beetles, or add a crunch to your desserts with Morbid Meringue Bones, dipped in raspberry blood sauce. Try out a black cherry Draculaâ€™s Bite red velvet cupcake with cream cheese, a heavenly Fallen Angel Cake, or go for the indulgent and truly dark chocolate Devilâ€™s Delight Cupcakes.
