Laptop cake

MADE EXPLORE #3

My first Laptop/computer cake.
Thank you so much to "Egg yol" & "CakesByShara" for all your help, you gave me some really good advice, and next time Shara I will get some foam core board (as you suggested) for the screen to make it less heavy!!
Everything is edible except for the screen, it is a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream covered (bottom layer) with blue fondant and then the top layer (laptop) is the same but covered with grey fondant then painted silver. This has turned out to be the fiddliest cake I have done so far, as I cut out the keys on the keyboard individually, just incase it broke while putting it on, and as for the Ipod in the front, I added that because I put a dent in the front of the blue layer of cake, but I quite like the look of it, well except for the screen (on the computer, that is)..........but hey they aren't eating that............well I hope not!!! Lol!

    It's wonderful, the work on the keys really is amazing. The one thing I think is a problem is the text on the monitor itself. Why spend so much time on everything else and then skimp on that? It's the most eye-catching part of the whole piece. My hope is that the screen is just a placeholder?
    Anyway, besides that, the cake is wonderful.

    Wonderful, very cool!!! Only a question: how did you let the screen stand up? With some dowels, I think... but how did you put them in the cake? Sorry for my english...;-)
