With the fervor over the upcoming movie release of Twilight, based on the novel by Stephanie Meyer (which I admit I haven't read yet but the preview I saw of the movmovie looked good), we shouldn't be surprised to see Twilight cupcakes popping up, including this Friday in Port Angeles, Washington:
Now Port Angeles, where Bella and Edward dated, enjoyed Italian food and watched the cinema, is rolling out the red carpet for "Twilight."...
The red carpet will lead from Bella Italia, 118 E. First St., to the Lincoln Theater, a few doors down.
Both are considered to be sites described in Stephanie Meyer's four-novel series about a love affair between a mortal and a vampire, both students at Forks High School.
Neither location is named in Meyer's books (and, by the way, none of the movie was filmed on the North Olympic Peninsula).
Bella Italia is considered to be the Italian restaurant where Bella Swan and her vampire beau, Edward Cullen, go on their first date.
It received the official stamp of authenticity, so to speak, from the author herself, when she dined at the restaurant earlier this year.
Bella Italia will feature the mushroom ravioli that Bella and Edward eat on their first date -- beginning Friday and continuing through the end of the year, said owner Neil Conklin...
"We're also featuring vampire wine and special Twilight cupcakes," he added.
Are any of you making special Twilight cupcakes? If so, we'd love to feature them, as well as these Bella Italia ones.
In the meantime, here are a few from Flickr:
