After being banished for so long to the land of the pretty and identical, the domestic and the twee, cupcakes are biting back—and you can make some killer cupcakes with this fantastic cupcake-decorating kit.
Including a book of 25 recipes, a cross and a coffin cookie cutter and two sculpting tools, the kit provides an introduction to making cakes that look weird, ugly and even grotesque—but that taste divine! Lily Vanilli shows you how to work with natural ingredients and cake-decorating tools to create amazing edible decorations such as a cupcake graveyard with gingerbread tombstones. Why not give guests a shock with the revoltingly realistic Marzipan Beetles, or add a crunch to your desserts with the Morbid Meringue Bones, dipped in raspberry blood sauce?
