Yes, I used a cake comb on the sides. I found it to be very difficult. With the board being in the way I could hardly get the curved effect. If I do this again I am going to put the cake on a cardboard to fit the size of the cake, then put it on my turntable, then ice the sides and comb them before I put it on the covered board. If anyone has another suggestion, I would like to hear it. Thanks!

This is flawless! Really beautiful...I'm new at decorating...how did you make the pages? A cake comb?

Thank you all!!! jennzapita ~ have you tried the Viva paper towel method? Just ice the cake, let the icing dry a bit (mine usually takes 5- 10 min.), put a Viva papertowel on the icing and gently smooth it with your hand or the fondant smoother. My favorite is the fondant smoother. I call it my cake "iron" :wink:
