iPad Cake

My first attempt at a computer/ipad/electronics cake; it was a new challenge for sure, but I love how it came out. I printed out a photo of the birthday boy and his daughter, and then brought it to the grocery store to print it out on an edible rice paper. He was so surprised when he saw the cake. Half the reason I love making cakes is how amazing it feels to see how happy people get when they see you made something delicious for them, and to watch them discover all the little details you spent so much time working on. I’ve been all smiles. I think he took more pictures than I did! I made the app icon “button” out of tinted fondant, and then piped buttercream frosting for the tiny details.

I really had fun with this cake.
