Twilight and Moonlight

First up....A Twilight Themed Party! I was asked to make a red velvet tiered "wedding cake" for the Grand Opening Night of the movie, Twilight. This was a really fun project to do. The crest took a good hour and a half to make, so if you are planning on doing this, allow plenty of time! :) I carved it out of fondant, and then piped on "Cullen" and the clovers with icing.

Ahh. The completed crest.

The finished product

Next, we have a Moon and Stars themed baby shower. My friend Leah showed me these cute ideas that she wanted for the cake/cupcakes, and here are the final results! The cupcakes were chocolate, and the cake is a pumpkin spice cake that was SO easy to make--not entirely from scratch--but oh so moist and delicious! Here is the link to the recipe: http://www.thecomfortofcooking.com/2010/11/pumpkin-gingerbread-cake-with-spiced.html

The cake was covered in homemade marshmallow fondant, and the large moon was made out of gumpaste.

Congratulations to Kristen and Ben and little Sam on the way!!
