Cut the styrofoam to the size you want the book to be. The size of the styrofoam I used: 4 x 5 x 1.2 inch. Use a sandpaper piece (wrapped around a smoother) to smooth the styrofoam. Hold the smoother straight and make sure that all sides are level (if the styrofoam is domed it will be visible later).

  • Cut and smooth the styrofoam away from all edibles.
  • The styrofoam needs to be isolated from the cake (with sugarpaste or foam board).
  • Don’t mix the sugarpaste that touched the styrofoam, with the edibles. Throw it out or put in a labeled bag and use it for non-edible purposes.
  • Don't contaminate edible glue with styrofoam pieces. Use a separate small container (f.ex. take some out on a spoon).
  • Don’t use the same brush (which you used to apply glue on the styrofoam) to apply glue on other edible parts of the cake.
  • Remember to inform the client/recipient of the cake that the topper has styrofoam inside, so it’s not edible (the topper is food safe, but it’s not edible).
