Stacked Books Cake

I made this cake for Dave (my boss) for his birthday this year. His wife Samantha wanted to surprise him with a cake disguised as a stack of some of his favorite books. Inside the fondant is a vanilla sponge cake filled with vanilla bean frosting. I also added 2 secret layers of diced reese’s cups, that everyone seemed to enjoy. I really enjoyed making this cake; it was a large (and heavy!) project, and the small, awkward slices of fondant for the book covers were quite a challenge. Overall, I’m pretty happy with the end result. Happy Birthday Dave!
