Lily Vanilli began baking grotesque cupcakes in response to what she calls the “cutesy icing/poorly baked” cupcake craze. She focused on making really good cupcakes and then icing them in bizarre and morbid ways. Among her gory successes are Zombie Hands, Shattered Glass, Day of the Dead Skulls, Ghastly Ghouls, Morbid Merengue Bones, Rotten Ragworms, Black Roses, and Marzipan Beetles. There are even zombie sliders. They’re all brought to life with seven basic cupcake recipes, two basic icings, and standard decorating fair.

Dramatically illustrated with bugs, ogres, and body parts, this a fun read as well as an excellent cookbook. It’s a perfect resource for Halloween and your customers will want to keep baking these grisly confections ever after.
