A woman I know asked me a long time ago for a "New Moon" cake. Her daughter is really into the Twilight books and decided to have a party celebrating the book/movie of New Moon.
So I made a cake for them in the shape of a book. The cake was white cake filled and iced with white buttercream icing. Then partially covered with black fondant to look like a book.
Instead of trying to re-create that beautiful elaborate flower on the cover, I got an edible image printed up of the actual book cover.
My husband suggested making a bookmark too.
The writing on the front and side is royal icing.
Kat told me that one of the guests almost went to pick up the "book" because it looked so real.
