Whip up some frighteningly good cakes this Halloween with the help of London baker Lily Vanilli.
Whether you’re throwing a Halloween party, holding a gothic wedding reception or just have a fascination with all things gory, Lily has 25 cupcake and mini cake projects that are sure to give your guests a fright. Treat them to bejewelled and rainbow designs or trick them with marzipan beetles or a shockingly realistic bleeding heart.
The recipes and designs are all simple yet effective, making this book a great introduction to working with the likes of sugarpaste and piping gel. The cupcake recipes are surprisingly varied, with red velvet, honey and almond, and pecan, nutmeg and cinnamon, as well as the usual chocolate and vanilla.
The book would make a fun gift and is sure to inspire bakers everywhere to turn to the dark side.
