ATried 10x and water...what does that mean? Anyways, if you don't have a lot of stars to make, get some Qtips and vodka, and rub off the coloring in little dot size patterns. Assuming the fondant underneath is white, that will give a good look. That's what I did on a cake around Christmas time, might be in my galleries.

AAh...powdered sugar, 10x? Can you just make royal icing, and pipe that on in tiny little dots?

Oh my gosh, that is a stunning cake! It may have been tedious, creating that starry night effect, but boy! you sure pulled it off. You really captured the book.

Yikes, I just wrote a comment and somehow lost it before I posted. This cake turned out amazing. You certainly brought a treasured book to life. Now I've forgotten what I had written! :(  At any rate, this cake is really a work of art. Such fun to eat a 3-D illustration for a lucky recipient!

AWow!!!! I have to agree with everyone that cake is truly a wonderful work of art. Awesome job!! How long did it take to complete if you don't mind me asking? Whoever got that cake must have been proud.

Thank you it prob took a total of 60 hours but i make everything including the fondan.  I like to make sure evrrything tastes as good as it looks.  It woukdve been a lot less time if i had a good extruder.  Saving time in this line of work is all about the right tools for the right job.
