Sweet Reading

7 Jan

I absolutely love to get new Cupcake and cake decorating books, even more so when i have them bought for me. So you can imagine my excitement when this year for Christmas  i got 3 Cupcake books, all of which i have had my eye on for a while. Let me tell you i was very excited indeed.

Drum roll please………

and here they are, the new additions to the Sweet Sassy book shelf.

Planet Cake Cupcakes, Paris Cutler.

I really can’t wait to try some of the things in this book. At first glance this book seems full of good ideas and also has some very cute things in it aswell, cute is good, right.

If you are still looking for cute you certainly won’t find it in the next 2 books i received. If however you are after something a little darker with a bit of gross and gore thrown in, then these are the perfect books to go for.

Zombie Cupcakes, Zilly Rosen.

As if the ideas alone aren’t enough, this book has lots of recipes in and the cherry on my cake just had to be the Zombie Trivia that is dotted on occasional pages throughout the book. You can’t go far wrong with a bit of Zombie trivia. It made my day anyway.

Last but not least, my final book and another firm favourite is

A Zombie ate my Cupcake, Lily Vanilli.

Another book with great ideas, yummy sounding recipes, lots of weirdness and gore galore.

Sadly i haven’t had chance yet to try out anything from these books but hopefully i will get chance shortly. As soon as i do i will blog about it, post pictures and let you all know how i got on making them.

    Oh, those look brilliant!!! I can’t wait to see what you try out. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought a book about zombie cupcakes existed- let alone two!

      They are brilliant, i really can’t wait to try something out of them. I also had no idea books like this existed and i just stumbled across them purely by accident, glad i did though.

    I bought a cake decorating book years and years ago that I stumbled on at a book fair, all the cakes just looked so amazing. I still have it, have never made a single thing out of it, mostly because sugarcraft scares the bejeezus out of me! Good luck with the zombies!
