Along the same lines (kind of icon_razz.gif )

My mom lives in a big beautiful 110 year old house. Right across the street is a Taco Johns. People who come to her house sometimes comment "Hmmm... I wonder why they would build a house right across from a Taco Johns." icon_confused.gif icon_confused.gif icon_confused.gif

I can get the theme wedding, I can get the dark-romance thing, kinda.
But S-s-s-s-parkly, vampirs? Nope, nope, nope!

I do not like the sparkly vampires! icon_razz.gif




icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif Sparkly vampires!!! That's great. This is the greastest thread is awhile! I don't like sparkly vampires either. Personally I am a muscular werewolf fan. Back in high school I was a HUGE Buffy and Angel fan. Obsessed, probably like many many girls are today with Twighlight. Maybe if I had gotten married back then, when I was 16, I might have wanted a Buffy themed wedding cake. But now?? I'm 28, got married 4 years ago. I can't even imagine taking anyone seriously if they asked for a wedding cake themed around a movie romance. Anyone make a Titanic themed wedding cake back in that craze?

Interesting thought, except the account is older than yours... Not trying to stir the pot, just pointing that out.

In general, I say to each his own. A twilight wedding, well, there are enough theme weddings out there already, so why not. To pick the date to match, people do that for other events all the time. To match a book, slightly weird, but not totally out there...

That account was made on July 4. I'm pretty sure she had no idea that this would come up for discussion when she joined the site.

I have been asked to make one for February.

I say to each their own. If someone wants that themed, why shouldn't they have it? People ask for cake designs all the time that not everyone would love or like or what ever.

And themed weddings aren't something new. Some people are very into them. As long as they are happy, why should I care if it is a Twilight theme what ever theme it is. It is after all their wedding, not mine.

LOL, I don't understand the craze. My daughter read the books but hated the movies. And her only obsession was to buy the book at midnight & stay awake till she's done reading it. But then again she will stay up all night reading any book series she loves.
I laugh at non teens who are obsessed with twilight. If your an adult shouldn't you know its fiction, which means its NOT REAL. Maybe we should start selling glitter & dog fur & tell them its from the alter universe of twilight.

What does a Twilight wedding cake look like? Sparkly? I need to go Google.

Have your cake any way you want it! If the decorator doesn't feel the motivation/inspiration find another. That's the great thing about choice, you can choose someone who is willing to make your cake and make you smile.

I love the books myself. Yeah, not afraid to say it either. thumbs_up.gif

honestly if i had the date open i would have taken the order, it was just comical to me her boohooing because she is having trouble finding someone to the cake at the last minute and how important it was for her to get married on edward and bellas date. I do some pretty out there themed cakes, i just cannot get over the amount of twilight wedding cake request i have had and am amused at how obsessive some fans can be.
only time i have ever been that obsessive i was 7 and it was for new kids on the block, and i didnt want a nkb themed wedding, i wanted to Marry Jordan..lol!

@Cake4Ever - "What does a Twilight wedding cake look like? Sparkly?"

That would be a perfect. Simple white stacked cake, airbrushed to sparkle. Maybe some red satin ribbons drapping the whole thing topped with the red/white flower from the book cover (not sure...is it an orchid?) Still elegent and "twilight inspired" but without copyright infringement of using logos or character sculptures.

I agree with all who posted to "to each his own". I don't see the difference between someone requesting a Twilight cake or a Dora, Sesame Street, Dr Seuss cake or any other cake for that matter. I think it's all played out... lol Just because the baker has made 50 cakes with the same thing it does not mean the customer has ordered that many. It's new and fresh to them. With that being said.... The thread is funny and I am a Twilight fan! lol icon_rolleyes.gif

One i get slightly aggrivated when people wait til the last minute and 2...sorry not a huge twilight fan. so in the last week i have had 6 wedding cake request that i have turned down for that date. I just had a girl in here boo hooing her eyes out because she cannot find anyone to do a cake for the 13th because she waited too long and she cant go to walmart becasue it has to be twilight themed and she just has to get married on the 13th becasue thats the day edward and bella get married.........very hard for me to keep a straight face on this one. I told her i was sorry i was maxed out for orders that day and she said but so an so siad you usually will work in orders, and so i told her yes typically i try to work with people on short orders but i had to be done early that day because i'm celebrating my anniversary....

oh then here comes the heavy waterworks...you are so lucky you were married on their day .....umm, yeah we were married before the books were out, and i tell you what after this round of crazy i almost wish i could change our anniversary date. whew, sorry had to get it out before the next fan comes around and i cannot contain the laughter.

anybody else getting obsessive fans getting married on the 13th too???




Wow, she could go still to Walmart or wherever and have them put black ribbons at the bottom of each tier and she can buy a Twilight topper to put on top of her cake.

She is truly into Twilight. I wonder if she did get married on the 13th. icon_smile.gif

That's what I was thinking, something elegant and simple. But I googled and it was all red and black and the typical birthday cake type with the apple and the chess. That is not how I would imagine Bella and Edward's cake to look. I can't wait to see what it looks like in the movie! I bet we'll see a lot more requests for that cake! Hmm...I wonder who did the cake for the movie?? Ooh, that is the 2nd big cake of the year after Will and Kate's. icon_wink.gif

Here's a pic of what one Twilight Cake would look like:

I also saw others where the main use is the white the red ribbon, the flower, the apple, and the checkered pattern with the chess pieces.

I highly doubt that is their cake. A lot of photoshop going on in that picture. I could understand brides wanting the cake in the movie, once it comes out. But just today I read on a blog the bride wanted a Edward and Bella figures topper for the cake. Hmmmm

icon_redface.gif Sorry I didn't mean anything by my post. I guess it did sound a little snarky. I just know there are alot of Twilight fans out there that spend hours creating fake trailers/photos of the new movies, so when I looked at the wedding cake, right away it looked photoshopped to me.

Seeing the cakes that MariaLovesCakes posted makes me feel kind of out of the loop...and maybe a little old (jeez I'm only in my 30s)?

Those are very lovely cakes, but what does the symbolism represent? I don't really have any basic knowledge of Twilight other than the author is rolling in money and the vampires are sparkly. I'm not being snarky, I'm just being honest about my limited knowledge.

I recall there being a lot of requests for Bella's birthday cake after the 2nd movie came out. I can only imagine how bad it's gonna be when the wedding cake is known.

I can definitely see that!

About vampires." ..."Ooookaayy." icon_confused.gif

Oh my goodness both of these posts made me laugh! I can just see the faces of the grand children realizing that no there grandma did not go crazy with the years and that yes she has always been crazy! And I have never read the books, I did watch the first movie because it is my cousins favorite!!! But that was enough for me, plus the ~S-s-s-s-parkly~ vampires scare me!

NO... not joking they scare me the same way clowns scare me! There is something just wrong with them. Then again having been an avid Anita Blake fan, up until the 10th or so book, its easy to see why every fiber of my being is against them!

(for those who do not know Anita Blake is a Vampire Hunter series writen by Laurell K. Hamilton, read it in High School and now it has become a Graphic Novel series.)

I wonder if they will give out vampire teeth favors. Like the kind you get at Halloween.

You could make a cake that gushes blood when you cut it.

myheartsdesire: I agree that if a true Twilight fan wants the Edward and Bella wedding cake, it would have to look like the one in the wedding. Not one that has the book cover themes. And nobody is going to know what the cake looks like until the movie comes out. The baker who made the cake has been sworn to secrecy. I am a huge Twilight fan (and over 21) and I would love to have the bed featured in Eclipse. I think that for bakers, this latest installment of the movies will generate alot of orders. Just take advantage of the interest and go for it. I am sure these brides will pay whatever price to have it.

That's what I was thinking! I'm so darn sick of being asking to do Dora and Elmo and then telling people I can't do them anyway... ahhh... bummer icon_smile.gif

I'm a fan of the books (easy entertainment and all...); but then again, I like easy reads. Seriously though, I didn't even know the date of Bella and Edwards wedding icon_confused.gif. Too me that is the most over the top part of the request! Should have told her that August 13th comes every year and she could wait till the next August if it were that important. You may have done her groom a favor! icon_wink.gif
