I started with a basic sponge cake and added chocolate fudge buttercream icing, then covered it in fondant icing (with a ton of food colouring to make it black).
I had a lot of luck with the chocolate balls I found, 'cause they were almost the same colour as the book. To get them into the right shape I cut a heart shape out of grease proof paper and laid it on top of the cake.
So then it was just a case of putting the writing on, which was probably the hardest bit. Luckily, I found a tip online to use a toothpick to draw out the letters first.
What do you think? Have you ever tried to do book-themed baking. I'd love to hear your stories.
