Ramona's book cake
This cake was made for my MIL, Ramona, for her 60th birthday!
My FIL decide to throw her a huge surprise party (or have us throw her, rather) and we took on the task of making her this giant cake! She has her master's in library sciences and works for the Hurst Public Library so the book theme seemed natural. I had been wanting to make her a book cake for a while and this was the perfect opportunity!
The books separately.
The Better Homes & Garden/Bible/open book are real (chocolate and lemon), the reference and Cake Doctor books are dummies. (open book is vanilla)
From the back:
This cake turned out exactly how I wanted it to! It was LABOR intensive - we worked on it every day for a week, staying up until 4 am or later some nights but it was definitely worth it!!
