What are you most proud of? That the books truly looked old and well loved. Everyone commented on how life like they were and a local bookstore that was celebrating its 50th anniversary thought this cake would be perfect as an advertisement for their celebrations,

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's hard to get a true leather effect on the books. In the absence of any fondant texture mats I used a fine wired brush pressed randomly into the fondant which gave it the perfect texture.
