Thanks for posting this! I am going to do my first book cake for a church cake auction. Now I know what I'm doing!

Will the top corners of the book droop if you don't add tylose powder?

This is great! Just what I was looking for. I hope it's as easy as it sounds - I'm kind of nervous! icon_razz.gif

This is so funny because I was on here an hour ago looking for how to do a stacked book cake for a grooms cake I have to do tomorrow! Thank you so much for all your help and taking the time to type out the directions for us!

I have a question...did you use a stencil for the lettering Holy Bible on the cover? I tried using a stencil to write letters using dusts with alchol but it leaked and smudged. What did I do wrong?

Well thank you so much for your help Cserva! I made my first book cake today)pics in my pictures). Went fairly well for my first one. I did a Harry Potter theme for a Grooms cake for tomorrow night. I have other elements that will go with it (I will post the pictures of the rest of it tomorrow). Its everthing that the Groom loves all rolled into one cake.

Sherylshirley, stenciling is something that takes a lot of patience and a steady hand. And probably some practice before putting it on an actual cake. I'm a total novice at it, but quite interested in getting good. I've seen it done by people who are really good at it and even they have their off moments. But please don't despair. I'm sure about the practice and patience thing. I'm also sure there are a few tricks to this that we haven't had a chance to pick up yet! Let's hope we find them soon!

To all who have posted here in general, thanks for all your contributions: this has been a very informative thread!
