Ok, so I am making a stack of books, now I think how will I do this without the boards showing. I will be covering with fondant and there are no borders to cover the boards. Do I just cover the entire thing, board and all with the fondant. I will be the one cutting the cake so I will know the boards are there but won't that be a little awkward to cut? I need help with this. I am working on the cake today.
Cut the support board slightly smaller than the cake. When you stack it, that should hide the board.
I don't know if this helps but I would try putting boards under the cake that are a little smaller than the actual size of each book. I would make sure the boards go in about a 1/2 inch or so from the sides so you can't see them.
That's what I did - cut the boards to be just a little smaller than the cake. Only wrap the cake. The board won't show.
In my book cakes, I have the buttercreamed cake on the board (same size) and then cover the whole thing like normal in light (pages) fondant, the roll out a long piece of dark (cover) fondant, set the "book" down and wrap the "cover" around it just like a real book would be. No board to be seen at all this way.
