Book Cake

Here's a cake I made for the staff in my son's school to say thank you for being so wonderful.
It's based on a piece by artist Su Blackwell, who's work I love! I discovered her paper sculptures in a gorgeous cut paper art exhibit called Slash, at the Museum of Art and Design, in columbus circle--- very very worth a trip!

  4. That is a fantastic effect! How did you get that paper-cut-out feel? Is it fondant or gumpaste or something else? Really nice job.
