Good Afternoon Fellow Cake D's,

I have a little problem. I have been asked to do an open bible groom's cake for a friend. Does anyone have any ideas about how to make an open bible cake? I checked out some of the bible on this site and saw several that I think would be worth trying, but I still need a little help....

So Ladies, does anyone have any suggests?

hi, i have done it both ways. I have used the wilton open book pan and carved myself. I definetly use the wilton open book pan now. It is so much easier. Why carve , when it is already done for you. I have both sizes now in the open book pan. I have a book here that shows how to carve it. That is what i did the first several times. No more. lol Book pan all the way. hth

For this I just used 2 sheet cakes side by side. I then carved them so that they were a little more rounded. Then iced and and covered in fondant. Easy peasy! The "pages" are edible images. If you have any specific questions Id be happy to help as much as I can icon_smile.gif Good luck!

This cake was baked in a book pan. the sides were combed to get the pages effect and then brushed with Gold luster dust to get the gilded effect.
the top was covered with fondant with the corners curled up a bit to give a more 3 dimensional page look.
Hope this helps!
