I am making a 3 book (stacked) cake for this sat. Going to bake, tort and frost Friday night- finish all the fondant work on sat.
I have a question- the instructions on here said to use 3 separate pieces for the pages- i thought it might be easier to cover each cake (book) with white fondant first, and then do the colored cover piece on top of that - would that be way too much fondant ya think? I just recently bought "The Mat" so I was figuring i could roll the fondant pretty thin.
Also, as far as support/structure. I bought 3 cake boards (with the laminate or whatever that is sides) - i plan to pair those with the wooden dowels for under each cake. Do you cover your boards with foil or clear wrap?
I'm a total novice in the cake world, this will be my 3rd fondant cake so forgive me if the questions seem dumb lol
I rolled out the top of the grad cap last weekend and it has been drying since. I may have to roll another piece though because I am now worried it is too thin and may break.
oh and anyone that has done the book cake - post your pics, i love looking at them, it is very helpful!
