Farewell Book Cake

 This cake was one that has been on my list for a long time. But I had to wait until someone ordered one because it would be a great waste of cake if I made it just for me.

So, this cake is an order for a farewell cake for a young woman we know who is going off to college. 

I made two ten-inch square vegan chocolate cakes. Each one was trimmed to a smaller rectangle.

Then I frosted it with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream.
And I placed a strip of white fondant on three sides of the smaller edges.
Then, while allowing this cake to set up, I started the smaller cake. I placed it on an old cutting board and frosted it on it.
And added a strip of white fondant around three sides of the book.
Then, while allowing that to set up, I covered the book cake with green fondant for the cover and I added a thin strip to the bottom of the cake to make the bottom cover.
I added the top cover to the smaller book.
Then, using small spatulas, picked up the small book and placed it on top of the larger book.
And I added the smaller strip around the bottom of the red book to create the bottom cover.
Then I used a fondant press mold to make the words Intro to Psychology and Behavioral Science.
Then I rolled a piece of white fondant into a scroll.
Then I pressed a ball of red fondant and pressed a pattern into it and placed it on the scroll.
Then I made a graduation cap with a tassel. I made it by covering a piece of cardboard with black fondant. The rest is just fondant.
Then I placed the letters of the titles on the books.

And I placed the scroll and the graduation cap on the cake.
I am so proud of this cake. I think it turned out gorgeous.
The young woman going off to college loved it.
Wishing you all the best in college studying psychology, Gabriela.
