Happy Birthday Bessie!

My friend Bessie LOVES Twilight!  Until a little while ago, both Bessie and I had never seen the movie or read the books.  So when our friends wanted to go see New Moon, I confessed I hadn't seen the first movie.  They were in shock and demanded we watch the DVD that night.  Bessie and I finally ended up watching the movie and, after that, we were hooked!  A few days later Bessie and I got together with our friends to see New Moon on opening weekend.

When Bessie's birthday came around a few weeks ago, we began discussing cake designs for her special day and settled on a Twilight theme.  For her cake, we created a Twilight book cake to mimic the cover of the first book in the series.  I really wanted to create a realistic replica of the cover without using a computer printed edible image.  And so, I hand painted the hands and apple with LOTS of petal dusts and powdered food coloring which allowed me to achieve the textured and shadowy look.  The painting alone took 2 hours to complete!  I was very happy with the end result and this cake has become one of my favorites!  Bessie's Twilight themed party was held at Tsunamis Bar & Grill and she got to play the movie on all the t.v. screens in the bar!

Happy Birthday to my very good friend Bessie!
