'Breaking Dawn' Premiere Party Tips: The Cake

A lot like a wedding, the cake is the centerpiece of your party. Choose the right cake, and everything else will fall into place. Your cake will obviously depend on the time you have and of course your budget.

Simple cakes from your local grocery store or super center are very affordable and easy to come by. Places such as Wal-Mart or Costco will allow you to bring in your favorite Twilight photo and make an edible screen print right on top of a cake for you! This version of cake doesn't require a lot of planning and is easy on the wallet. Maybe to spruce it up a bit, take your favorite Twilight cast pic and photoshop the picture and plug yours and your friend's faces onto the cast. Make your dream come true of being the girl on Edward's arm.

If you are willing to spend a little more money, go to your local cake decorator and come up with a design that will leave your friends in awe. The options on this are limitless! Pick your favorite scene and chose something from that scene and turn it into food art! Maybe a cake depicting Isle of Esme or a checkerboard cake with chess pieces just like the cover of the book.

Do it yourself! If you are anything like me...#1 you don't have the counter space to create something wonderful or #2 you lack that thing called talent in the baking world! If you want to do it yourself, scale things down a bit and make cupcakes instead of a huge cake! Vamp up each cupcake your own way and it will be a hit with all of your Twi-hard friends. If you lack decorating skills, maybe try putting your favorite Breaking Dawn quotes on decorative little cards and use a toothpick to make them cupcake toppers.

Now that you have decided what the cake will look like, you have to pick what it will taste like. This is a no brainer. If you are staying true to the vampire have to choose a blood red velvet cake or possibly something tropical to take your friends on a journey to Isle of Esme.

I am posting some picture ideas and I encourage you to send in your own. Remember with any party...its all about the cake so make sure its something Edward would gladly take a bite out of!


  1. I had the New Moon cover pic on my 30th birthday cake. I know it's super dorky, but it makes me happy.

  2. I love it and there is no such thing as too much of a fan on this page :)

  3. I'm gonna ask this for my birthday <3
