My cousin wanted a book cake for her husband that reads a lot. I made two 9 x 13 cakes. They were white cake and lemon filling. I cut each of them in half and stacked them.
I buttercreamed each separately and then put the fondant on. I wrote on the top one in gold. His name is Louis, so I put King Louis LXXX which is Eighty in Roman numerals. that is the age he just turned. It was a very hot 110 Degree day and my fondant was cracking on me.
I wasn't very happy with it, but they ate every crumb. Nancy of CA
