Today’s spine-tingling entry comes to you from the unholy cesspool of pastry gone mad. Avert your eyes if ye be cowards, lest you see something that you cannot unsee.
Now, how is a non-cupcake-cooker/maker to review a book about cupcakes? Specifically, Zombie Cupcakes: From the Grave to the Table With 16 Cupcake Corpses.
Well, like this, I suppose:
It appears to deliver exactly what it promises: morbid cupcakes. But they’re not all actual zombies, so don’t get upset if you turn the page to find that this cupcake does not actually have a zombie on top of it, but rather, a vial of the T Virus from the Resident Evil games and movies.
Or see this foulness over here! A hungry carrion crow is pulling back the surface of this cupcake, revealing something red and glistening beneath.
Here’s the biohazard sign. Delicious! Tastes like plague!
And yes, there are actual zombies as well. I’ve read some of the Amazon reviews for the book, and a few of the negative complains focus on the fact that 16 cupcakes do not a book make.
I’ll say this: it made me laugh and I was able to read it all in one horrifying, blood-curdling sitting. I’ll never be the same. I better ask Janette to make a bunch of them so I can eat them and prove that I am courageous. This is even scarier than her post on Elmo cakes.
