New Moon Movie and Cake

So I've read a lot of books lately but I just haven't had the time (lazy) to blog about them. One reason I haven't had time is because I've been obsessed with creating a cake for the New Moon Movie.

My sister and I made plans to see New Moon this opening weekend. We've been waiting and waiting and waiting, and yay! we finally got to see it.

It Was Awesome!

Hubby saw it with us, and he enjoyed it too. He didn't even roll his eyes when I kept exclaiming "my boyfriend is in this movie......oh look there's my boyfriend.....oh look there's my other boyfriend......hey he's cute, he's also my boyfriend......"

Anyway, here's a few pictures of my cake .....

It took me FOREVER. Yeah it's not perfect, but I think it's pretty good for an amateur cake creator.

If it's not obvious, I'll explain...

It's a movie reel (New Moon The Movie)

as well as the book.

The cake is a pound cake with cream cheese frosting in the middle. Slathered with buttercream frosting and covered with marshmallow fondant. The book and center of the movie reel are made out of rice crispy treats covered in fondant. The flowers, the letters and the top of the movie reel are made with gumpaste.

I have to mention, I did not have any special tools, nor do I have any training. It was a hard process with lots of revisions, but I think it turned out pretty well.
