Deliciously Yours feeds 100 Monkeys..and Vampires!

Last week we got an exciting phone call from Jackson Rathbone's (plays Jasper in the Twilight saga) manager asking us if we'd be interested to provide dessert for a private cast and crew party for the current Twilight movie being filmed. Boy, were we ever excited!

So our brains were in overload mode, what on earth do we make for a cast & crew party filled with celebrities that'll really knock their socks off? Monkeys, popcorn and burgers of course! - cake style!

We created mini vanilla flavored cupcakes and made brownies for the "burger" portion of the cake:

And butter pecan mini cupcakes with marshmellows to look like buttery "popcorn":

And finally some monkey themed cupcakes to salute the 100 Monkeys who are a fabulous band!!

Getting the phone call on Thursday afternoon meant we were gonna work overtime to make sure we had enough to serve about 200 guests. Saturday night finally arrived and Sara and I couldn't be more nervous/excited! We set up at the Player's Chop House in Vancouver and this is what the spread looked like:

Phew! Now it was time to mingle! Our very good friend Jill is a crew member of the current Twilight movie, so we got a chance to meet some great people through her!

Now I'm sure everyone's wondering, did Robert Pattinson get to enjoy your cupcakes, did you get to meet him? The answer to that one is a definite yes! Sara and I mustered up the courage to talk to him and I even brought a hamburger cupcake for him to sample and he enjoyed it very much! We had a nice chat with him along with Kellan Lutz, who made it very clear to us that he had taken a business card and wished we were international so he could get mini cupcakes from us in LA!

We were on cloud 9 by this point and the whole experience couldn't have been any better than what it was. The 100 Monkeys played an excellently long set and everyone grooved to their tunes the whole night. Jackson is really one of the nicest and down to earth celebrities we've ever met. Out of respect for all the wonderful people there, we didn't take photos with the actors as this really was a night for everyone to unwind from all the hustle bustle of the movie world, but we did get a photo with the 100 Monkeys, after all they were the reason we were there in the first place!
So, we end off this entry with a huge thank you to Jackson Rathbone, the 100 Monkeys and all the wonderful people at the party for taking what was a simple business card exchange to a whole other level!
Deliciously Yours,
Jzabela & Sara

ps. That night at about 2:30am Sara got a mysterious call from an unknown number which turned out to be Robert Pattinson himself, telling us how "beautiful" our cupcakes were! What a sweet guy! Totally the icing on the cake!!
