Twilight Cake – Nailed It!

By | August 17, 2012

Here’s a bit of a blast from the past.  When Twilight was the teen reading sensation in our house I made a Twilight birthday cake.  The concept was simply to have a plain Victoria sponge cake and top it with buttercream.

If you squint a bit you can imagine this looks like the cover of the first Twilight novel, with two forearms showing on a black background, holding a red apple.  Unfortunately this is England, apples are green here, or maybe a bit brown, and I don’t have any in the garden anyway so I used raspberries in an apple shape.  Also, buttercream is never going to turn black, no matter how much food colouring you use, so the background is grey.  The arms are pink though.

It was a nice idea, it didn’t work out how I planned, but it tasted fine and kept me amused for an hour, so I nailed it!.
