2. How to make a cake look like a book?


      • 2 box cake mix
      • 3 can white frosting
      • 1 can chocolate frosting
      • Chocolate Spiders and/or Chocolate Flies
      • You will need: Wilton Two-Mix Book Pan


Heat oven to 350°F. Coat pan with nonstick spray. Pour prepared cake batter into pan.


Bake 30 to 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack.


Unmold cooled cake onto a 20 x 16-in. platter or piece of sturdy cardboard. Using a small offset spatula, spread with white frosting. Drag tines of a fork or a pastry comb around the edges of the cake to create page-like grooves.


To create a ruffled border around bottom of cake, fit a pastry bag with a pastry coupler, then fit coupler with a leaf tip. Fill bag with chocolate frosting. Hold pastry bag so that the tip meets the base of the cake. As you squeeze out icing, move bag backward and forward to create ruffles. Using white frosting, a clean pastry bag and the same technique, create a border around the top edge of the cake and the crease in the middle of the book.


To pipe spells, use a plain tip and write with chocolate frosting. To keep writing even, you may want to lightly imprint the pages with guidelines using the edge of a ruler. Garnish cake with Chocolate Spiders and/or Chocolate Flies, if desired.
