Twilight Eclipse Fire and Ice Cupcakes

Updated on January 20, 2013

Twilight Cupcakes - How to Make Fire and Ice Eclipse Cupcakes

Want to know how to make Twilight Cupcakes inspired by Edward and Jacob? Try these recipes for fire and ice Twilight cupcakes, perfect for those Team Edward or Team Jacob moments!

I went through a bit of a Twilight cupcake obsession - loving both the wonder of Twilight AND the wonder of cupcake eating. If this sounds like you, then you might want to make some too!

The Fire and Ice chapter in Eclipse is one of my favourite scenes in the whole Saga, where Jacob warms Bella against the cold in the tent and engages in awkward but amusing banter with Edward.

Fire and Ice sums up the two rivals perfectly - hard vampire Edward, who is always ice cold, and soft-furred werewolf Jacob, whose temperature runs red-hot.

So when I read a blog somewhere online musing what an Edward cupcake would taste like (she went for red velvet, and I've made those too, here), I figured that an Edward cupcake would have to be hard and cold, but at the same time, melt into your senses. A Jacob cupcake, on the other hand, would be soft and warm, with a hot centre, and look a little untamed.

So I made these Twilight Eclipse cupcakes, just for fun! They would be perfect for a Twilight Eclipse party, especially if it has a fire and ice theme or if you want some friendly Team Edward-Team Jacob rivalry!

I've also added some alternative suggestions for suitable cool Edward and hot Jacob flavors. So read on for instructions on how to make these fabulous Twilight cupcakes. If you try making them, I hope you enjoy them too!

Jacob's Fire Cupcakes

Chocolate Mud Melt Cupcake Recipe

Bite into a soft, warm cupcake filled with a hot, passionate centre..."

Ingredients:

10.5oz dark or milk chocolate, depending on your preference

10.5oz unsalted butter

5 eggs

4oz caster or superfine sugar

4oz self-raising flour

Makes 12 cupcakes

1. Pre-heat the oven to 190 C (375 F, Gas Mark 5) and line a cupcake tray with 12 baking cups

2. Melt the chocolate and butter in a pyrex bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring well until it has all melted. Take off the heat and set aside to cool

3. Beat together the sugar and eggs until they have turned thick and pale. Fold in the flour and then add the melted chocolate and butter, stirring in until well blended

4. Divide the mixture into the baking cups and bake for 15-20 minutes. They should look and feel gooey and soft

5. Once baked, cool for a few minutes and then remove from the tray, serving immediately while the centes are still gooey. You can add an optional glaze topping of 6oz melted chocolate mixed with 3 fl oz whipping cream, and also Jacob cupcake toppers too. The topping will be melting and oozey just like the inside!

6. If you are making these ahead of time, you can store them in the fridge in an airtight container (I use Lock and Lock) for up to 3 days. Warm them through to melt the chocolate insides and make the topping fresh when you serve them.

Edward's Ice Cupcakes

Chocolate Ice-Cream Cupcake Recipe

Bite into a cupcake with a hard topped exterior, discovering an ice-cold heart that melts in the mouth...

Ingredients

8oz self-raising flour

8oz caster or superfine sugar

8oz softened unsalted butter

4 tbsp cocoa powder

4 eggs

1 tsp vanilla essence

For the topping and filling

6oz chocolate ice-cream

3.5oz plain or milk chocolate

75ml whipping cream

Makes 18 cupcakes

1. Preheat the oven to 190 C (375 F, Gas Mark 5) and line a cupcake tray with 18 baking cups

2. Put the softened butter in a large bowl and add the sugar little by little, beating well until the mixture is creamy. Add the rest of the main ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, vanilla essence and eggs) and beat until smooth and creamy

3. Divide the mixture between the baking cups and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the tops are springy. Cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely

4. Once cool, cut each cupcake horizontally and spread some softened ice-cream on the bottom layer, before putting the tops back on. Put in a container and freeze

5. Make the glaze topping by melting the chocolate in a pyrex bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir until completely melted, then add in the cream, stirring until thoroughly combined. Allow to cool slightly

6. Take the cupcakes out of the freezer and spoon the topping over each one. Return to the freezer to set

7. Serve straight from the freezer, allowing a little time for them to soften and the ice-cream to slightly melt inside. If preparing ahead of time, these can be frozen for up to 3 months

Making Twilight Cupcakes for a Twilight Eclipse Party

More Topping and Serving Suggestions

Make these cupcakes for your Twilight Eclipse Party!

* Serve your Fire and Ice cupcakes on two tiered stands, decorated accordingly. One could be topped with the Cullen crest, the other with the wolf pack symbol

* Give your cupcakes the wow factor with Twilight cupcake toppers - use Edward and Jacob rice papers like I did, or top with Twilight-themed symbols in either fondant or miniature charms etc. Another cool idea is to top the Edward cupcakes with crystal hearts and the Jacob ones with a wooden wolf, symbolizing the bracelet that Jacob gives Bella in Eclipse

* If you want the cupcakes to have more of a traditional cupcake look. top with a piped chocolate buttercream frosting

* Sprinkle chocolate shavings on the Jacob cupcakes to represent shaggy wolf fur, and silver Rainbow Dust or nonpareils on the Edward cupcakes for some vampire sparkle!

* Give guests official Twilight plates upon which to eat their dessert! You can buy the gorgeous new Eclipse range here:

WOLF LOLLY Animal Candy Mold Chocolate

There are lots of ways you can get creative and make fire and ice cupcakes! You can go for any hot or cold fillings, toppings or decorations, but try to capture the spirit of Edward and Jacob in your design and theme.

As an alternative to my main Fire and Ice cupcakes above, I also thought these two contrasting cupcakes were appropriate too: chilli and chocolate means hot hot hot for Jacob, and the strong, cool taste of mint added to chocolate for Edward. You'll find the recipe ideas below, but first, here are some other fun ideas for your Fire and Ice cupcakes!

  • Make small ice lollies on sticks in an appropriate Edward symbol, such as a lion or a Cullen crest style logo, and insert into your frosted cupcakes. For the Jacob ones, bake hot mini cookies in the shape of wolves or paw prints using appropriate cookie cutters, and pop on top of your frosting! Or insert wolf-shaped chocolate lollies into unfrosted cupcakes and top with a hot fudgey frosting when ready to serve!
  • For super easy fire and ice cupcakes, serve Edward cakes with ice-cream and Jacob cakes with hot chocolate fudge sauce!
  • Get some cupcake molds and cookie cutters, and make cupcake-shaped ice lollies and hot cupcake-shaped cookies!
  • Make Edward and Jacob ice-cream cone cupcakes! You can read how to make these here. All you need to do to adapt them as Twilight cupcakes is to put some real ice-cream in with or inside your cupcake filling for Edward. and some hot chocolate or fudge sauce in with or inside your Jacob cupcake filling!

Red Hot Chilli and Chocolate!

What better way to make a really HOT cupcake than with chilli?

I added dark chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon of chilli powder (add more if you're brave) to a chocolate cupcake mix like the one I used above for the Edward ice-cream cupcakes. The topping is a standard icing made from butter and icing sugar, along with cocoa powder for the chocolate color and flavor, plus a dash of Tia Maria - ooh yeah!

Super Cool Chocolate Mint!

Edward is one strong vampire, and mint is a good strong flavor, and menthol cool at that, so I figured mint would make a good flavor for another Edward cupcake!

In the recipe I used, I added plain chocolate chips and a teaspoon of mint essence to a standard plain cupcake mix, and for the topping, I added another teaspoon of mint essence to an icing mix made from butter and icing sugar. I added a small amount of green liquid food coloring to turn the icing mint green, and decorated with chocolate chips that had been dipped in edible silver glitter for some vampire sparkle! You could also dust with silver stars or rainbow dust, or dust over the edible glitter on its own.

Twilight Cupcakes Baking Essential! - A must have in the kitchen

Make baking and cake-mixing less of a chore with this invaluable kitchen gadget! Of course, it does so much more than cakes, but if you are serious about making cakes and cupcakes then this baby is pure genius. And this model even comes in stunning Twilight blood-red... what more could a Twilight baking extraordinaire want?

KitchenAid KSM150PSER Artisan Tilt-Head Stand Mixer with Pouring Shield, 5-Quart, Empire Red
KitchenAid KSM150PSER Artisan Tilt-Head Stand Mixer with Pouring Shield, 5-Quart, Empire Red

KitchenAid's Artisan stand mixer is a substantial piece of equipment: 325 watts of mixing power make child's play of creaming butter, kneading dough, and whipping cream. The kid in you will appreciate how quick and easy it is to mix up a batch of cookie dough. This model comes with three attachments: a flat beater for making batter, meat loaf, and all textures in-between; a wire whip for egg whites, mayonnaise, and more air-infused creations; and a hook for mixing and kneading yeast doughs. All three are solidly constructed and easily secured to the beater shaft with a simple twist. This model also includes a pouring shield for guiding ingredients to their proper destination, and the bowl itself locks tight to the base. Standing about 15 inches high, jutting out a foot, and weighing more than a grown woman's bowling ball, this stand mixer isn't the sort of appliance you'll wipe down and put away. Better to find a square foot of free counter space for easy access; besides, this machine is as pretty as it is rugged--you'll want to show it off.
