This cake is a representation of where a lot of us are spending most of our time right now getting ready for the holidays. Just one more batch of sour cream twists!
I'll admit it, I'm a grown woman with a not entirely ironic fondness for Twilight. I'm not a mom, I'm not living vicariously through my teenage daughters (because, ick). I'm just a person who sometimes loves reading really schlocky, badly-written novels with quickly moving plot lines. I wouldn't be ashamed of this cake showing up on my birthday, except that Edward looks a little sickly gray and moldy. Not a good look for a sparkly vampire.
When I was a kid I was sure I was going to be a paleontologist when I grew up. And look at me! I write for the Cheezburger Network about cakes and adorable things you can buy! I'm unearthing treasures every day, right? Look Mama! I made it!
When I was a kid I was obsessed with those fancy chocolates that look like seashells. They are used to spectacular effect here. At first I thought those were real shells! I'm filing this one away for ideas later in the year for sure.
