Bake the Books

One of my co-workers is in a book club. Nerd alert! Just kidding. =) I'm not a huge reader, but I have phases where I read a few books in a row. I used to say I "hate" reader, but that's not true. I hate when reading is a requirement, like for school. When it's for fun, I'm all about it. I wish I had more time to read. I could probably make the time.

Anyways, this book club is celebrating its anniversary today, so my co-worker asked if I would make a cake. She wanted two books piled on each other, the club's favorite and least favorite books. I've made a pile o' books cake before, which was huge, so I thought a smaller one would be easy squeezy.

I think because a book is a fairly simple design, it's harder to make it look fancy schmancy. Well, for me, at least. I've made three book cakes and the Twilight one is the only one I absolutely loved. See below:

Don't get me wrong, I do like how the book club one turned out! Here it is:

It's either going to be my mission to perfect book cakes or I'm never doing one again. haha I haven't decided yet.
