THE INSPIRATION: ?I was blinded by flashbulbs as we held the knife over a spectacular cake?too grand, I thought, for our relatively intimate group of friends and family.?
Bella, in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn
THE EXPERT SAYS: ?We extended the 'spectacular' cake's height by elevating each tier with bands of sugar red roses. The color signifies blood, while the white icing matches the couple's skin. I didn't feel that Bella and Edward would respond to a white-on-white theme, and used chocolate frosting as the sensuous motif?at least mortals respond very strongly to the scent of chocolate!?
