Message on top is an edible image on GP. Graduation boy is GP. Each book is a one layer 12 x18 cake cut in half & stacked (top book trimmed a bit smaller). Covered in BC then fondant. Authors' names are tappits painted in luster dust. Design on spines is hand painted with luster dust. I had more sagging than I would have liked to see. Thanks to Sugarshack & SweetArt for answering my questions about their book cakes.
