Twilight Funky Munky Style

The "tween craze" Twilight meandered into my kitchen on one warm summer morning last month.  The client of the twin tweens gave me these ideas: zebra print, hot pink, Twilight, and cupcakes.  Commence the brewing of the ideas!

 I have seen sooo many Team Edward and Team Jacob cookies that I just couldn't bring myself to do it that way.  So after bouncing some ideas off my fellow cookie connoisseur here is the result.  The cupcake is a devilish devil's food with cinnamon and nutmeg.  It is topped with a cream cheese frosting and pink sanding sugars.  Now for the Edward vs Jacob national crisis...

The lips are made of fondant and royal icing.  They were inspired by the Rolling Stones (What's up mic?) and True Blood.  Ok, vampire done now what in the world am I to do for the werewolf?  This one stumped me for a while.  I thought of doing a paw (to kidlike), a werewolf head (a little gross for tweens), and so on and so forth.  After days of contemplating what I was going to do with the werewolf cupcakes an idea sprang up like a careless weed after a summer rain.  What about a medallion with the marking of a werewolf?!  I swear sometimes I am so dern clever I surprise myself.  
I have to say that I was really happy with these little darlings.  Score 1 for funky Munky!
