About the Author

Lily Vanilli, aka Lily Jones, is a baker and cake designer. Originally a graphic designer, she began baking as a hobby and then started selling her cakes at Swanfield market near Brick Lane. Her cakes are made by hand in her own kitchen in east London, and are available online at www.lilyvanilli.com. She is known for her unusual recipes - she experiments with savoury ingredients such as avocado and bacon - and designs spectacular cakes and other edible treats, such as the marzipan insects she made for an Alexander McQueen film project, or the blood and gore cupcakes created for Maaike Meeking's show at London Fashion Week.

This is a CUTE book!!!!!!!It has some great ideas for cupcakes.
Shelly Besherse
When making the sugar glass shards make sure to use a large cookie sheet or the shards will be really thick, but they are impressive!

Full color photos of each cupcake and detailed instructions for each are given.

I just recieved this book today and what a Kick!

Sure some of these designs are going to be familiar to anyone who has done Halloween baking, but there is some new and different: Shattered Glass, Bleeding Hearts, Sweeney Todd's Surprise, Zombie Snacks, Rainbow Cupcakes (I'm especially looking forward to attempting these without making an ugly muddy grey color with all the colors.) and her Day of the Dead Cakes are beautiful! In fact what sets this cupcake book apart from other Halloween treat type books is that with the exception of bacon (yes, bacon.) everything is hand made by the author. Lily Vanilli is an artist and dosen't rely on premade candies and cookies to customize or accesorize her desserts.

Another big plus for this book is that it is a UK cookbook but the author includes both metric and US Standard (cups, tsp, etc.) and conversions for baking temperatures for both Europe and North America. So there is no need to look up conversion charts.

It will be interesting to see how well I can copy her work since clearly it takes a bit of an artistic hand to create these.

I just received this book and i don't know where to start!! These are some of the most unique and creepy cupcake recipes I have ever seen. Full color photos of each cupcake and detailed instructions for each are given. The "Shattered Glass" cupcake recipe even tells you how to make sugar "glass". I recommend this book to anyone who wants something a little darker for Halloween.

This is a really cute cookbook! It consists mostly of cupcake decorating ideas, but there are recipes at the back of the book. A lot of it is pretty time-consuming, but totally worth it (especially if you LOVE baking like I do). Great ideas and great recipes!

You REALLY need to be an experienced pastry chef or at least a baker with some decorating skills to make some of these beautiful and creepy creations. This would not be the case had the author gone the extra mile and added step-by-step tutorial instructions with photos, as I've seen in other books of this type. (a few of them have a couple additional small photos, but they're not enough to actually be helpful). She does direct you to refer to the photo of the finished product for aid in forming the shapes, but unless you have talent sculpting from photos, this won't be easy. You also need to buy quite a few specialty tools (unless you already have them, in which case you probably ARE an experienced pastry decorator), which can be expensive, but a good investment if you're planning on doing more marzipan/fondant work.

My recipe book just came in the mail today. It took awhile to arrive, so when I got it, I opened it right away and started to go through it. Out of 25 recipes, I only liked five of them. Now, I wasnt expecting to like all of the recipes, but five out of twenty five isnt much. Some of these ideas ive already seen online, or in other recipe books. I absolutely love horror, the macabre, and ive had a gothic lifestyle since I was thirteen. Im now about to turn twenty seven. So these cupcakes I thought would be awesome to make all the time. Not a total loss I suppose, I can still make five of the recipes. But the book wasnt what I expected. Hell I guess I need a real vampire to pop out of a cake and bite me on the neck, but thats just me ^v^

I am devoted to the world of horror and baking so I had to buy this book as soon as I happened upon it! The decorating ideas were inspiring, clear, and concise. I love the high artistic quality of the decorations even thought some can be quite time consuming. However, I have made the few actual cake recipes listed in the book and all have come out quite dry and crumbly. Especially the vanilla cake. I will stick with my own tried and true moist cakes, but go to this awesome book for decorating ideas all year!

Bought this as a gift for my cupcake obsessed sister-in-law. She hasn't made any of the cupcakes yet, but I'm excited to try them when she does. They look really creepy and gross, perfect for a Halloween party. It makes a nice addition to her growing collection of cupcake cookbooks. I wouldn't get it for a baking newbie, it is written for someone who already knows how to bake.
