Yeah.. that part one movie coming out that’s not Twilight.

Okay… I am a twi-hard. But I haven’t had an opportunity to do a Twilight cake. However, I guess Harry rules.. and truthfully the Deathly Hallows movie looks pretty awesome and almost makes me want to read the entire series.  Almost being the operative word.

Okay, Damon is having a sleep over and my 11 year old son is attending. His gift?… cake! His mom has no clue I do these types of cakes so I am anxious to see her face more then I am to see the birthday boy’s.

It is not as complex as the Harry Potter cake from March this year, but I love it just as much.


I love snitch. I had no idea how I was going to do his wings but fondant and toothpicks stuck in a ball of dry gumpaste are awesome…

Also I wanted to throw the scarf on the cake and not place it… but it kind of looks like a mixture of both. The fondant was stretching a lot while trying to throw it and then it started ripping so I had to place the rest of it carefully on the book cake. Grrrrrrrrrr. But sometimes in fixing something you don’t like.. well… it can end up worse. So the scarf stayed as is and I worked with it. I wish the camera could show more of the scarf texture. I was quite proud of it :)

Sigh… the things we cake people go through in the world of cake!


Anyway, Damon.. Happy Birthday man.
