One morning during last season’s London Fashion Week I woke up and stumbled down the stairs from my Hackney attic bedroom only to come face to face with Lily Jones hard at work on a multi purpose kitchen mixer straight out of Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory. Over the days following I was treated to taste tests during various stages of an other worldly red devil recipe. Lily Vanilli’s cookbook/graphic novel “A Zombie Ate My Cupcake” has just been released and I can attest that her beauty has been matched by her baked goods. Like her crackcakes Lily is drop dead gorgeous inside and out and her, until now, secret creations are sure to satisfy the most ravenous cannibal cravings.

Recipes include lifelike Marzipan Beetles (originally designed for Alexander McQueen’s film project), Meringue Bones, with raspberry blood sauce. Black cherry Dracula’s Bitered velvet cupcakes, with bloody bite marks in the cream cheese frosting, a Honey, Almond and Sesame Fallen Angel Cake and a dark chocolate Devil’s Food cake with chocolate devil horns. From Crackney to Crooklawn, it’s all good in the hood.
