My brother is graduating from law school in a few weeks, and I'd like to make a cake of stacked books for his graduation party. I saw several great cakes in the galleries, but I wasn't able to find instructions. Is there a how to article somewhere that I can't find, or does anyone have any advice?
I'm specifically wondering the best way to wrap each layer in fondant for the book cover, and how to stack it. I have made covered cakes in fondant before, although I don't typically. And of course I've never made it look like a book cover! I've also made several stacked cakes, but I'm concerned about getting a little gap between layers. I usually just hide this with a border, but with the stacked books there wouldn't be a border between tiers.
Thanks so much!
I would like to know also. I have to do the Twilight book formy niece. I've never made a book either
That was a very 'twilight zone' zone moment for me. I just spent the last half hour scouring the net for some good stacked book cakes and wondered if there was a 'how to' any where, then I saw this and paused for a second wondering 'did I post a thread about it?' lol.
So yeah, I would also love to have any info anyone could pass on about how to for a stacked book cake.
I'm glad I'm not the only needing help. Hopefully someone can provide some tips!
