Graduation Cake

The lady that ordered this cake requested three stacked books and I was happy to oblige with this vanilla poundcake and chocolate poundcake.  It was my first foray into carving cake...

Because I'm a stickler for detail and a bit of a perfectionist, I went to the bookstore after finding out what subjects the graduate liked best.  I took pictures of actual textbooks in those subjects and attempted to re-create them. 

Despite getting in a minor fender-bender during delivery (rear-ended!), the cake arrived safe and sound and was a huge hit.  It was fun to stretch my cake decorating wings with this one... it literally took me 8 hours to carve, frost, and decorate the books, but I think it turned out well!
