Twilight: New Moon Cake

Sometimes I wonder what I'd do without Google.... I often get cake requests for cartoons, characters or movies that I have never seen at all.  It will be something like Ben10, Pororo, Ugly Dolls or kids movies that I've never heard of.  With google, I have downloaded lots of picture and even watched lots of snippets of cartoons to get images for the cakes.

A few months back, I received a request to design a Twilight cake.  It wasn't as popular as it is today and I had no idea what that meant... but I noticed it was a trending topic on Twitter and followed the links to the web.  What would I do with out the internet?  Do research at a library, have my client fax or mail me a picture....
The book was alternating layers of chocolate sour cream and vanilla butter cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream.  The apple was lemon cake.
