This is my second time making this Apple Bookworm Cake. Just like the first, this was especially made for an Education Major Graduate. The apple and the diploma are made with marble cake with buttercream, then covered with fondant.
A closer look at the cute little bookworm wearing a graduation cap. The worm, stem and leaf are all made out of gum paste. The graduation cap and the glasses are made out of black fondant. The rosy cheeks are painted on with pink food coloring.
A better view of the details on the board. The Dr. Seuss books are made out of edible paint and gum paste. The pencil also is made out of gum paste.
