I've been asked to make a cake for a friend who's celebrating working in the same Library for 15 years. I'm making her a round cake that I'd like to decorate with miniture books made out of fondant. I think I can remember seeing a 'how to' in a book once but I've looked everywhere and I can't find it now!
Does anyone know of anything out there available online preferably? Or do you have any how-to suggestions?
One way would be to roll out a thick piece of fondant, about 1/3 of an inch thick and cut a 2" x 3" piece for the pages.
Then roll out a much thinner piece of fondant and cut a piece 4 1/2 inches by 3 1/8 inch for the cover. Moisten the top & bottom of the pages and apply the cover.
Just jimmy with it to get the cover to be a tid tad bigger than the pages after you cover them. So those measurements are approximate.
You can texture the edges of the pages before you put on the cover--you can color everything before or after. This makes a closed book. Stuff like that maybe. Vary the sizes. I recommend using edible ink markers for titles.
Booky thoughts for you.
Thanks! That's helpful
