Overview

Lily Vanilli shows how you can take inspiration from the macabre and grotesque to create some really evil-looking cakes that taste divine. Using natural ingredients and edible decorating materials, such as edible luster dusts, gum paste, and glazes, Lily shows you how to turn basic cupcakes into amazingly realistic—and delicious—sculptures, from Eerie Eyeballs to Ghastly Ghouls. For really gory desserts, why not make Dracula's Bite red velvet cupcakes, or some Bleeding Hearts, which are molded with deep red fondant into human hearts and covered with a cherry “blood” sauce? You can also go for heavenly Fallen Angel Cakes, made with a delightful honey-flavored frosting, or indulgent, truly dark chocolate Devil's Food Cupcakes, with ganache icing and chocolate devil's horns. With 25 brilliant recipes and tips and tricks throughout, this is the perfect introduction into the world of alternative cake decoration.
