This was for a weekend family reunion that ended on a sunday with a church service.  I made a bible shaped cake out of rectangle shaped pans, froze the cake and carve it into a book shape.  The flowers are gumpaste, the cross and everything else is fondant.  I colored the pages gold with gold dust for cakes I found at Michaels.  I gave the cross a wooden look by taking white homemade marshmallow fondant and putting a few drops of brown food gel on it and kneeded it until it gave me the look I wanted.
