What are you most proud of? The cover of the real book was gorgeous and I was nervous about painting a replica that would do it justice. I was proud of the final mix of colors and the effect, which looked quite similar to the book. Also, the hand-cut fondant letters were a labor of love that ended up being worth every minute

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself a lot of time. If I had to rush this project, I wouldn't have been able to pull it off.
