A friend is having a book discussion party this weekend to celebrate the twilight series. We are all supposed to bring a snack to share. She's making cupcakes and I know someone else is making sugar cookies. I was so excited to make a fun twilight cake but since there are only going to be 9 of us an extra cake would be really overboard. Just bummed. My creative mind isn't thinking of anything else fun to make. Any ideas?

How about making cake balls--covering them in white chocolate. After it sets then add some spikes in different lengths and make them "cake stars".

Of course, I have no clue what the "twilight series" is about...just thinking of something else you could do.

Well you can "decorate" something else. I did sandwiches for a little holiday party at my dd's preschool. They didn't allow sugary treats, so I cut bread into turkey shapes w/a cookie cutter, put the meat/veggies/whatever on the inside and piped colored cream cheese on the outside of the sandwiches in the same style as many of the turkey cookies I've seen here on CC. Maybe you can do something similar with a book theme. Satisfies your decorating urges and everyone's nutritional needs to boot!

Thanks for the ideas! I've never thought of decorating "normal" food.

post #7 of 17 has a really cute recipe for cream cheese penguins. Every time I make them they get "oohs and ahhhs".
They're adorable, and since you already have a piping bag handy they're pretty easy. icon_wink.gif

whenever I go to a card party I like to make sandwiches from brown and white bread. Before putting the top slice on I cut out hearts,diamonds, clubs and spades from the top slice (say white) and cut one from the brown with a cookie cutter. Then I take the alternate cut out and put it in the hole from the top slice cut out. lol Hope you understand what I'm trying to say. I thought maybe you could do stars for the twilight dawn theme

You could also make a sandwich loaf and use cream cheese beat with a little milk as the "frosting" and even color some it for piping! I saw it in an old Wilton yearbook, let me know if you want me to send you the directions....
