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.
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.
***Received for review via NetGalley.
The ideas in Zombie Cupcakes are pretty spooky, with lots of body parts and gore with piping gel "blood". Little mini brains are placed on top of honey cupcakes in Brain Food. A green zombie hand emerges from the cookie "dirt" in the Zombie Rising cupcake. There's even "poison" cupcakes like the Toxic Bite (red velvet), Biohazard ingested (key lime) and the T-Virus (blue banana).
"Know your zombie" mini-tests and zombie tips are scattered throughout Zombie Cupcakes and add a little extra fun. If your friends and family like cute and creepy treats, then Zombie Cupcakes is the book for you!
