Going Beyond Spider Halloween Cupcakes...

Caught the bug (sorry!) for baking scary cupcakes? Then why not try this book for size - A Zombie Ate My Cupcake by Lily Vanilli (aka Lily Jones) features killer cupcakes that are perfect for Halloween. I've made many a cupcake from this book and they are fab, fab, fab!

Make 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 Dracula's Bite red velvet cupcake with cream cheese, eat your way through heavenly Fallen Angel Cakes or go for indulgent and truly dark chocolate Devil's Delight Cupcakes. If Ozzy Osbourne made cupcakes, these are the ones he'd want to eat.

Lily Vanilli has also written another book, Zombie Cupcakes, which features 16 "cupcake corpses" of the living dead variety. If you love Halloween and you love baking creative cupcakes, then these books are must-haves!
