My good friend and photographer Chester D.M. (thanks for the photos of this cake!) wanted to surprise his niece with a Twilight-inspired birthday cake. I’ve seen quite a few Twilight cakes, but I haven’t really seen a sculpted Twilight cake yet. I used the chess piece on the cover of Breaking Dawn, and The Cullen Crest as inspiration for this cake.
I only had time to decorate this cake on the day of the party! It was stressful, but well worth it; she loved it! She’s a true Twilight fan!
This video demonstrates using a Pencil Design transfer technique on gumpaste to make The Cullen Crest. This tutorial is dedicated to birthday girl Nica, and all the Twilight fans out there!
Exacto knife or Scalpel
Toothpick or Chopstick
