So my sister is addicted to the Twilight series books and I wanted to make her a birthday cake themed around it. Any ideas?

Here's an idea.

You could make a cake that looks like one of the books in the series. If she has a favorite book from the series, even better. Then you could use an edible image of her favorite book as the cover. Good luck.

You could do the book idea.. that's a good one.. or you could try to replicate the book cover with fondant.. [I did a wicked cake. like the playbill.. that turned out pretty good..]

I did a Twilight cake...I just did a 3D apple with a bite taken out of it....and wrote "Bite Me" on the tray. I also made a wolf and a heart out of fondant and attatched them to a chain bracelet to set on the tray. (the bracelet is in the books.) The apple with a bite out of it with the words "Bite Me" is an image from Fan Club t-shirts.......HTH

My daughter is a Twilight freak and she says, "Robert Pattinson. He's hot." She has read the books four or five times each.

I agree with skeet1zp a book cake would be awesome! Just get a edible image of the book cover! icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif

i think the best would probably be the book! I am such a twilight nerd, I am definitely older then the target demo, but who cares?!?

I have a Twilight cake in my head, but I'm not sure how to make it. If anyone thinks they can do it, go for it. And share your techniques!
It is a cake board covered to look like a chess board (although, if you needed a bunch of cake, you could make it just a large square cake). On top are the chess pieces like on the front of Breaking Dawn, but they are BIG. Carved out of cakes (I'm thinking the 6" round for the base) and covered in fondant.
I'd draw and post a picture, but my drawing leaves much to be desired.
If you wanted to incorporate the other books, you could carve and apple and do fondant ribbon and a tulip out of gumpaste. Those ideas came from several on this site.

what about the "Team Cullen" family crest? I saw the movie last Friday and loved it, starting the reading series after Christmas. My 13 y/o niece is head over heels for this series. Her mom bought her a team cullen jersey for Christmas. Just a thought.
