Making a Bible-shaped cake is a great idea for baptisms, first communions, church socials and other spiritual events. You may be aiming to make your Bible-shaped cake look realistic, more abstract, colourful or unique. Whatever you have in mind, there are plenty of ways to decorate your cake after you've baked it.


If your cake resembles an open Bible, use white or cream-coloured frosting to cover your cake as a base. If it resembles a closed Bible, use a dark-coloured frosting, perhaps dark purple or deep red, to cover your cake.

Bible Pages

Your Bible-shaped cake may resemble a closed or open Bible, but either way it's a good idea to make indented lines along the sides of the cake to look like pages of the Bible.


If it's an open Bible shaped cake, include a ribbon as a bookmark by using dark-coloured frosting and a knife to paint a ribbon onto one page next to the centre where the "book" opens.

Filling the Pages of an Open Bible-Shaped Cake

If it resembles an open Bible, you could use a dark coloured frosting and a knife to paint a cross shape onto one of the pages. Place a piece of edible paper on the other open page with a verse from the Bible written on it.

Embellishing the Cover of a Closed Bible-Shaped Cake

If your cake is shaped like a closed Bible, use white-, creme- or gold-coloured frosting to write "Holy Bible" at the centre-top with a knife.
