OUT IN SEPTEMBER 2010
Cooked up in the darkest of graveyards, Zombie Cupcakes presents a ghoulish army of delicious creations that appear anything but sugar-coated.
Recipes range from Zombie Flesh to Zombie Brain, from Gravestones to Night of the Living Cupcake.
All the cooking and icing techniques are included, and every recipe features step-by-step instructions for the baking and icing, alongside devilish illustrations and photography.
This has to be the best idea since Pride and Prejudice and Zombies!
If my Mum had made me Zombie Cupcakes for one of my birthday parties I would have have been the most revered kid in the school.
Why, oh why, did Mum have to make me a Bert and Ernie cake!?
About the Contributor
While still in his twenties, John Purcell opened a second-hand bookshop in Mosman, Sydney, in which he sat for ten years reading, ranting and writing. Since then he has written, under a pseudonym, a series of very successful novels, interviewed hundreds of writers about their work, appeared at writers’ festivals, on TV (most bizarrely in comedian Luke McGregor’s documentary Luke Warm Sex) and has been featured in prominent newspapers and magazines. Now, as the Director of Books at booktopia.com.au, Australia’s largest online bookseller, he supports Australian writing in all its forms. He lives in Sydney with his wife, two children, three dogs, five cats, unnumbered gold fish and his overlarge book collection.
