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.

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 wish i had looked into it more.
