I'm glad to see that the end of the movie series hasn't dampened the enthusiasm of the HP fans out there. The books will be read and re-read and cherished forever, mark my words.
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 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.
Kate and Wills had a seriously fantastic decorator for their epic royal wedding cake. It's fruitcake which I don't really understand, as fruitcake is just not tasty. But it is incredibly gorgeous and gigantic: 8 tiers of different flavored fruitcakes, each with a different decorating scheme. I'm mad impressed.
