Story Book Cake Tutorial

For those of you who love reading, this is the perfect cake!! Also for those of you who read to your kids, this is also a great cake to make. I love reading, and I love to read with my son. Also, this is not difficult to make and you can recreate your own story. I chose Little red Hood and Nemo because I love the first one and my son loves the second one.
