Format: Paperback
The title just makes you think "disturbingly cute idea" does it?
My daughter and I were both enthused over this cookbook. 16 cupcakes with decorating instructions to make them fit for a horror themed party, Halloween or just grossing out her dad.

So first, the decoration. Instructions are given for all the little disgusting details, which include rats, crows and eyeballs. The instructions are clear enough that even if you aren't a master sculptor you should be able to make all the projects. Some may need a little practice like artery detail on the eyeballs. The author uses some clever techniques and simple tools for a lot of the effects. The decorations use purchased, ready to use ingredients (fondant and gum paste) along with food coloring. Amounts are specified.

The recipes are fantastic. Because if people can get past the "EEEW!" factor, you want the cupcake to be the reward right? It starts with 4 frosting recipes, and lots of cupcake recipes, all made from scratch.Gingerbread, pumpkin, chocolate, devil's food, vanilla, there is a cupcake recipe for every occasion. All well explained and easy to bake.

As far as kids go, my teenage daughter thinks this is the coolest cupcake book ever. I have a bunch of cupcake books but the gore combined with the recipes appeals to her. My husband picked it up and glanced through it, then set it down quickly and said "I didn't want to see that." I asked "What?" and he shuddered and said "The eyeballs."
I promised not to try and feed him those, but didn't say a word about The Crows cupcake with it's fine detail of shiny raspberry jam "blood" under fondant "skin".

Recommended absolutely if you're a fan of zombies, cupcakes or have teens who love the gore. Great way to inspire kids to cook.

I got this book at no charge from the publisher to review for my craft website, Don't Eat the Paste. I'm never paid for my reviews and they are always my honest opinion.

Recipes and instructions for sixteen special zombie movie themed cupcakes packed into one volume? Sounded like a cool book to add to my collection. My collection of zombie themed goodies anyway. No, I didn't pick this up with any plans to actually bake or decorate any cupcakes. Which means I wanted it merely for the fun of having a book mixing two of my favorite things... zombies and cupcakes! Which it definitely does. Rosen put together some really nice ideas for themes and matched her cupcake flavors nicely. Mud cupcakes with zombie hands rising from them? Genius!

So why did I find it only okay? All of the decorating is centered on fondant work. Which might be okay if it was all visually top notch--and urgh I feel overly critical saying this 'cause I know mine would look horrid--but most of it looks like playdough claymation leftovers. I expected them to look a little more professional. If I actually planned to make any of these I have to say though the recipes look killer (no pun intended). I would love to make the applesauce and caramel ones.

In the end I think you have to decide what you want from the book. Yummy recipes and zombie decorating ideas are what I think it best offers. This just isn't the cool "coffee table" type book I was thinking it was so I wasn't as impressed as I'd hoped to be.

Format: Paperback
Casper the friendly cupcake? No, even better - Zombie Cupcakes by professional cake designer Zilly Rosen who comes up with 16 deadly designs for one of our favorite treats - cupcakes. Just in time for Halloween or fun any time of year for that matter.

Picture in your mind's eye, if you will, carrot cupcakes frosted in dark shades of purple and red then topped with body parts - irresistible. Zilly's such a good teacher that she not only provides photos of the finished products, recipes, but also instructions down to the last macabre detail, such as ˝ drop of a food coloring.

Now, you know all good zombies like to rise from the dead so there are mud cupcakes with a garish green hand seeming to push its way out o the earth. Of course, there are skeletal zombies and a lovely decapitated head atop gingerbread cupcakes. Zilly has a real flare for the fearsome.

She has even included "Know Your Zombie" quizzes with answers included. Lots of good eating and frightening fun in Zombie Cupcakes.

Enjoy!

I thought this was a book of cupcakes but it is more about very hard cupcakes to make. I don't think I would ever be able to make one of these cupcakes.

These little cupcakes were thoughtfully put together. While some were simple others were more complex. The recipes do seem geared towards fondant fans. I liked how the cupcakes range in scale from cute, so you could serve them at a childs party to grosser for your horror fan /teen party.

The way to any person's heart, in my opinion, is through food. Plus when it comes in the form of cupcakes and totally awesome decorations who can refuse?

The recipes included in the book have simple step by step guides to how to make the selected desert. There are full colour pictures throughout, trivia about classic zombie movies and in the front section are simple recopies that are called for in some of the recipes.

I have to say that I am planning to try some of the recipes. The three that I liked most are: Eye Poppers, The Crows and Bride & Groom. I can't wait for Halloween when I will try these out.

I would be very interested in knowing if there are any further books in this series as if they are like this one I would love to try it out.
