Rated 5 out of 5 by from First, this cake was a huge hit, so if you want to feel like a rock star cake decorator, this is a great way to get there! Second, this cake is pretty time consuming - that's one reason it got "somewhat easy." Specifically, making all those little pictures can take a while because you have to give everyone hair and eyes, etc. Also, keep in mind that the pan, which does make a perfect book-shaped cake, is pretty big and so takes two batches of batter that take an hour to bake. Also, I wanted to put a filling in the cake and the book is pretty short for that, so if you're going to torte this cake, leave a more time for it than you normally would. This was fun to make and easy to personalize: I put the names of her friends under each picture and, in a cartoony way, made them look like her friends. Enjoy!
