A friend asked me to make a Twilight New Moon Cake for a movie party she was having.

Here is the short version:

It was a 9″ round cake, 2 layers, filled with buttercream icing and covered with black fondant, wrapped with a strip of red fondant. The ruffled tulip is was cut from gumpaste and hand painted with gel coloring. I painted New Moon on a strip of white fondant and placed it on the cake board.
