3D Bookworm Cake

3D Bookworm Cake on Cake Central

I made this cake for our daughter's 2nd birthday. I've never taken on a big and elaborate cake. It's a lemon cake w/lemon buttercream frosting. The "leather" of the books is white fondant that I painted with gel food color mixed w/water to give it the mottled look. The worm is made from rice crispies treat, wrapped with colored fondant. The letters are also colored fondant. I definitely wish somethings turned out a bit better, but overall I'm happy. Most importantly, our DD loved it and yelled, "CAKE!" :-D

It is 5 layers of 8x8 cake, with the left/right sides cut down about 3/4". Extra pieces on top make the books different heights. I'm glad you like it. :lol:
