A Novel in Cake

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cake, buttercream, fondant, gumpaste, gel paste colors and lots of brushes 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.
