Teacher appreciation cake or "Children's Book Cake"

The edible ink says:
"How do you thank the one who taught your child to read?"

Olivia is front and center. Behind her are Frog and Toad to the right.  On the other side is my Kindergartener's teacher, Ms. Winn, as a book worm.

On the sides we have Bill Peet's Wingdingdilly, Curious George, and The Magic School Bus.
Here's a close-up of them drying.  

It was hard to choose only five characters to model.  So thankful for all the great teachers in the world!

Thanks to Marj for the design inspiration for Olivia and George and to micahs for the frog and toad design.
