Open Book Cake Pages

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I need to make an open book cake for my son's birthday. I know that I saw instructions on how to do the sides and curled pages fir an open book cake, but now can't find them after hours of looking (and finding many interesting detours icon_smile.gif ). Does anyone know where I can find a link for those instructions? Thanks so much for your help!

Well, I just do the top pages as a thin rolled page of fondant, curling the corners a bit and letting them dry like that.

For the edges of the pages, I put on a good layer of buttercream and then drag a butter knife or small spatula thru it.

If you want the look of "pristine" pages, you could use a comb with one-sized teeth to drag through the buttercream.

There. Their. They're not the same.

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Or cover the edges in fondant and score them with a wheel tool, butter knife, spatula, cell pin, or veining tool.

I do loads of open books and use a comb and then paint in gold or whatever colour book pages I need.
Rae, I love your curled pages, great look.

If you'd rather cover in fondant I use a flexible plastic ruler to mark the pages, works great for me!
