how do you all keep these up? if youve made one can you share how you covered it and kept it upright and any other tips you may have learnt.

i have only done this once.

I made the screen out of blue hard candy poured over dowels (think i used 4) like lollie sticks then cut a piece of styrofoam that i glued to the cake board this is what the screen was stuck in to keep it up right. wrapped the styro with fondant and the outside of the screen with white and dark fondant. Iced the cake that was the keyboard for the computer and butted it up against the styro base then when the cake got to the destination just placed the screen on. (do make the holes in the base before getting to your destination for ease of placement)
