very good job! I know she loved it. I want to try making a cake with closed stacked books . what size pans did you use?
Awesome cake! Great job.
LOVE the books!! What a beautiful cake; your niece must have been overjoyed.
What a lucky girl! Fabulous cake for her graduation...I'm sure she'll never forget it.
great job! i always wondered how to do the support of the cake if its hanging off. your books are just slightly over the edge of cakes below, did you do anything special, like a foamcore to keep them from sagging? wonder what if even more overhang than yours, what would i do? thanks if anyone can reply.
Thanks everybody~ it was so much fun doing a cake that I had complete artistic liberty with.
I always use the SPS system. I just use the prescored legs and cut them smaller for shorter tiers (like the books). The plastic plates they are on allow for overhang a bit with support. I've never had issue with it.
The books were cut down from square and rectangles...never actually measured them, just eyeballed it to make sure they would "fit" okay with the design.
Thanks for looking. It was one of those cakes that I just LOVED how it turned out.
