Can anybody give me advice on how to make the apple and what are the red and white leaves or feathers I see on most of the twilight cakes?

Hi there. I made a twilight themed cake last month. To make the apple I just formed a ball of red sugar paste and put it in a flower former for three days. I then made a little brown stem and placed it in the top and then painted it with edible glaze.

I believe the flower is a ruffled tulip.

Thank you Cakegirl, your cake is lovely, I will give it a try.

What is a ruffled tulip?

Just google ruffled tulip, it's an actual flower. If you google ruffled tulip gumpaste, tutorials on how to make them come up. You can even search on here, there are threads which have covered this previously.

I'm on my phone, I tried to copy links but it didn't work.

Hello,

like Lisapeps said, it is a ruffled tulip. Here is an example of a twighlight cake where the tulip looks great:

Thank you.

It's actually called a "parrot tulip". Thought that might help in your search for pictures.

mo63 Posted 27 Feb 2012 , 9:19pm

A parrot tulip.....ok, I will google it thumbs_up.gif

Thank you, everyone has been so helpful.

I am not making this cake until middle of March but I will try post a picture icon_biggrin.gif

Cute! Well done!

ChristineCMC Posted 23 Mar 2012 , 2:19pm

So excited to see this thread. My birthday is next month and I have decided that this year I am going to get the cake that I want even if it means I bake it. I'm doing a Twilight cake. I've already bought the chess chocolate mold and all this information is going to make everything else come together.

Thanks for all the information and thanks to the OP for asking!

mo63 Posted 1 Apr 2012 , 7:45am

Hi christineCMC

Hope your cake turns out fine and hope you can post us a picture when it is done. The most difficult part for me was the ruffled tulip icon_confused.gif but everything else was pretty straight forward.

Good luck with it icon_smile.gif
