OK, I was asked about making a computer cake and some UBFunkeys. Now, I asked... 'What the heck is a UBFunkey?'
here they are:
So I gather they're little robot-looking toys that connect and interact with your computer. Not a problem, they look pretty simple to make, right?
My friend would like a computer cake, with Funkeys randomly placed around it. So.. I can envision how to make a laptop, but I can't envision how to make the screen... I'm guessing styro or rkt? What I can't wrap my head around is how to make it stand up, so the laptop is open and secure (without a bunch of eye-sore supports showing) and still looks like a laptop.
Anyone have any ideas?
I'd use styro. Use hot glue to glue the styro directly to the cake board. Then deco the styro. Deco the cake and set it up against the deco'd styro. Hope that makes sense!
It does, thank you!
Do you have to buttercream the styro before stciking the fondant to it, or is there another way?
You can just spritz it with water from a spray bottle to get the fondant to stick to the styro.
