I have a request to make a cake with the Lightening Thief as the theme. I don't have any idea other than what the mom told me what it is about. She said something along the lines of magical, and I did a search and came up with some ideas. Just curious if any of you have read the book and/ or have made a Lightening Thief cake!

Thanks for any ideas!

No, I've never heard of the Lightning Thief.

But the movie poster would make an interesting FBCT or CT:

Here's a thread which has FBCT/CT, Edible Image Plaques and Photo to Sketch help:

I have not made a Lightning Thief cake, but am preparing to icon_smile.gif I have read the books; they are all about Greek Mythology, and over the course of the 5 book series, you meet pretty much all of the Gods and Goddesses and other well known creatures.

The 1st book focuses mostly on Poseidon (the father of the hero of the story), Zeus, and Hades.

I hope this helps!

the Lightning Thief is a great cook - a bit on the lines of the Harry Potter series in that the main characters/heroes and heroines are 12 or 13 when the series starts. It's less magical and more mythological. The heroes are "demi-gods" - children of humans and the ancient Greek gods (who in the series are still present today, but mortals are not aware of it).

anything related to Greek mythology would be good - and tying in America (the "Olympus" of current times is in America (over NYC)), Hades is off the coast of Hollywood, etc. (if I remember correctly). Some of the book takes place at the summer camp for these demi-gods"... "half-blood, I think it was called. There are lots of creatures from Greek mythology - Centaurs, Cyclops's, Athena (the heroine's mother), Zeus, Poseidon (the main hero's father), nymphs, Medusa, etc.

hope that helps some!
