Does this look like two sheet cakes stacked and sculpted? My friend wants chocolate cake with chocolate frosting so I was planning on cover the cake in ganache and white fondant. Will the chocolate ganache show through? TIA.http://londoncake.com/images/Christening/003087%20Book%20Shaped%20Baptism%20Cake%20with%20Turned%20up%20Pages%20and%20Silver%20Trim.jpg

No, it looks like two 1/4 sheet cakes next to one another and they appear to be two layers tall with some carved away.

Or is it the bookcake pan?

I don't think it's the "book" cake pan because the arched or humped portion on the pan is more toward the inside of the book nearest the binding. This cake has the highest part of the hump right in the center of each cake. The reason I also believe it could be two layers carved down to size is because if you look closely on the left side you can see a slight bulge from either the filling between both layers or the filling from stacking sliced layers. Also, besides the difference in the shape, I don't think you could overfill the book cake pan to get the result in this taller than 2" high cake.

Would you paint the side (pages) in silver? I think it would look more like a book if they were painted. Just looks plain.
