Can anybody give me advice on how to make the apple and what are the red and white leaves or feathers I see on most of the twilight cakes?

My daughter wants one for her birthday but I dont watch the programme so no nothing about it. icon_smile.gif

Hi there. I made a twilight themed cake last month. To make the apple I just formed a ball of red sugar paste and put it in a flower former for three days. I then made a little brown stem and placed it in the top and then painted it with edible glaze.

I believe the flower is a ruffled tulip.

Just google ruffled tulip, it's an actual flower. If you google ruffled tulip gumpaste, tutorials on how to make them come up. You can even search on here, there are threads which have covered this previously.

I'm on my phone, I tried to copy links but it didn't work.

Hello,

like Lisapeps said, it is a ruffled tulip. Here is an example of a twighlight cake where the tulip looks great:

Have fun making this cake, can't wait to see the pics.

All the best,
Marina

It's actually called a "parrot tulip". Thought that might help in your search for pictures.

So excited to see this thread. My birthday is next month and I have decided that this year I am going to get the cake that I want even if it means I bake it. I'm doing a Twilight cake. I've already bought the chess chocolate mold and all this information is going to make everything else come together.

Thanks for all the information and thanks to the OP for asking!
