A Zombie Ate My Cupcake by Lily Vanilli – Book Review

Wondering what ghoulish treats to serve your little goblins and witches this year? Look no further than ‘A Zombie Ate My Cupcake’ by Lily Vanilli. Just released this summer, this book features 25 fun, scary and creepy concoctions that are sure to thrill any little Halloween lover (AKA my husband!).

With full-page colour pictures and detailed directions, you can make some pretty professional looking holiday treats. Most of the recipes are for cupcakes, but there are some additional treats included that would make party guests ask who your caterer was.

I can’t wait to try out the ‘Morbid Meringue Bones’ or the ‘Marzipan Beetles’. The beetles look real and even give me the creeps. But that’s what Halloween is all about.

The recipes cover treats from fun and fear-free to some more scary options so there is something in there for everyone and for every age. With Baby Bird being so young right now, I will be making some of the more colourful treats such as the Rainbow Cupcakes. But I can just see Papa Bird asking me to make the Bleeding Hearts in no time.

Lily Vanilli is a baker and Cake Designer and this is her first book. You can pick up a copy of this book at Amazon.ca for $14.40 or from Amazon.com for $10.85.
