I saw a picture of a lab top cake in the gallery. Please does any one have an idea on how the screen is made to stand up right? I would very much appreciate any help. Thanks.
It looks like the screens of the laptop are styrofoam covered in fondant and held up with dowels.. hope this helps..
if you or someone you know is handy with a table saw:
get 1/2" or 3/4" plywood.
cut to shape of base of laptop cake
about 1" or so from what will be the BACK of the laptop -- cut a groove that is 1/4" wide and the width of the board -- this groove should be on a slant of somewhere between 60 and 30 degrees.
get piece of 1/4" luan. cut to shape of screen. put into slot. stack cake and have at the detailing.
