So I am making a 30th birthday cake for my sister's SIL.
She is a Twilight freak icon_smile.gif so that's the theme for the cake.

I have looked at ALL the cakes in the gallery and have a general idea of what I will be doing but I am stuck on how to really emphasize her love for Edward. So far the best I can come up with is to have a pair of fangs on the cake, but am not sure that's enough.

Any ideas on how to really make it "Edwardy?" (cause that's a real word, I know! icon_rolleyes.gif )

Ok, so I'm about to expose myself as a big Twilight fan as well. icon_smile.gif

I personally wouldn't put fangs on the cake, because Edward doesn't have them, just razor sharp teeth.

In the book, his prey of choice was a mountain lion, so you could run with that. Also, he sparkles in the sun, so you could make the cake sparkly! icon_biggrin.gif

Good luck, and I can't wait to see how it turns out!

I would put some of Edwards quotes around the cake.

For example "You are my life now" is a well known one which Twihards relate to.

This is THE twilight quote which every Twihard knows

And so the lion fell in love with the lamb
What a stupid lamb,
What a sick, masochistic lion.

And another cute one Take care of my heart, I left it with you

I also wouldn't recommend putting fangs on, and I like the sparkly cake idea.

If it were me getting the cake I would want it in the colours red, white and black. I would want it to be a "romantic" cake IYKWIM.

I would also include the "Twilight tulip"

And I've just outted myself as a twilight fanatic too lol

If your skills are as new as mine, this is a no go, but if not, maybe you could add a little model of his car?

I'm loving the idea of the sparkly cake and the quotes!!

Ok, since we seem to be having an AA meeting for Twihards... My name is Christie and I am a Twihard...

That being said... Edward plays the piano, can quote shakesphere... drives a Volvo, there are so many things and quotes you could do. The best one I can think of is where he and Bella are laying in the meadow. That is just an awesome scene.

HTH, PM me if i can help any more.

I love juleebug's idea of the buttercream transfer (nicely done juleebug!). Hmmm I would make my design different.. just to be unique (I hate to do a straight out copycat lol). If I were making it, I would make a box style cake and place the transfer on one side of the cake and then incorperate a 'happy birthday such and such' on the opposite side.. then on the opposite remaining two sides place some memorable quotes from either the movie or books (I'd go the books - much more romantic *sigh*) Then to finish it off I'd place a fondant red shiny apple on top with a lovely glossy red ribbon wrapped around it draping over the edges.
Well.. all that said and done I wish I were making a twilight cake lol
Good luck.. I'm sure you'll do great
