I have looked every where that I can think of and can not find a tutorial on making a stacked book cake. I get the basic stacking principles what I am having trouble with is the book cover. In most pictures it seems that the cover is a little larger then the pages and I am not sure how to do that. If is is just fondant won't that fall and droop? If anyone has any instruction on this or you know of a turtorial that on this I would greatly appreciate the help! Thanks

the books were easy just time consuming. a thick piece of white scored fondant with the lines was placed on the 3 sides for the pages. the spine and top cover were one piece. i added a TON of tylose to the colored fondant. rolled it out just under 1/4 inch thick. let it set up some before i put it on the cake. go no more than 1/4 inch over the top edge of the cake or cover will droop. I propped the corners up with viva for a while so they would not droop. the bottm "cover" is just strips (1/4 inch wide) applied along the bottom white part of the pages.

hth!
