I can't remember if I've shared this with y'all before, but I'm a Sunday school teacher. That's right, somewhere between the home remodeling, cake making, blogging, and house cleaning, I also teach Sunday school at my church. It's one of the most rewarding jobs I get to do. We recently celebrated out fall kick off and I couldn't resist making a cake for the occasion.
I frosted the cake with buttercream and smoothed with the viva towel. Then using a viva towel and a paint brush handle, I put indentations on the sides to simulate pages.
Here I forgot about my camera again. I dusted the page edges with some gold luster dust using a very soft brush. I also used some black modeling chocolate to make the cover of the Bible. If you look closely you can see in the photo that I mitered the corners and wrinkled it to create the binding. At this point, I added the icing images for the pages. The ribbon is made of pink modeling chocolate that is brushed with cranberry luster dust.
As a final touch, I had my student's memory verse highlighted(Psalm 119:11). This cake was a definite crowd pleaser.
