With thanks to Custom Icing happy customer Jessica, for this review of a YouTube tutorial on how to make a book cake.  It is worth noting that Jessica has never made or decorated a cake before this.  It's amazing...

Book Cake - Customer Tutorial

Here we share with you Jessica's experience of the "How to Make a 3D Book Cake" video tutorial from Yeners Way Cake Art Tutorials. 

Yeners Way is a subscription based tutorial website, but they do have some free tutorials available also. 

Watch the full tutorial video:

 

Now bake your cake!

Here is the recipe that Jessica used:

Ta-Da!  Cake done.

Cake carved to book shape

Covered in ganache

A note from Jessica:

"I ended up adding a third layer of ganache. Your last layer of ganache must be nice and smooth to ensure the fondant goes on well. Your fondant will only be as smooth as your last layer of ganache."
Now it's time to roll out the fondant and cover your book cake. 

See how Jessica used a comb to add the "pages" detail:

Jungle Book design
Add a different colour fondant around the book to be the cover of the book. 

Pipe white icing or white chocolate around the cake where the 'pages' meet the 'cover'.

Apply your edible images to the top of the cake (following the instructions provided with them).


You can also add a ribbon and any other decorations you wish. 

Now you're done! 
Cake Completed
The conclusion is that Yeners Way Cake Art YouTube Tutorials are great!

From a complete beginner such as Jessica, this excellent book cake has been created. 

Well done Jessica and thank you for sharing your experience with us.
