Hello all...I am making a computer (laptop) cake and am looking for ideas on how to attach the "lid" of the laptop. I considered making the lid out of foam board and attaching with wooden dowels, but wondered if there was a way I could use cake. I'd like the laptop to look like it's open, so the lid will nedd to be perpendicular to the base. Any suggestions would be great. BTW, most examples I've looked at use foam board or do not say how they got the cake to stay up. TIA
Your idea would be the right one. You would need to use eithr styrofoam or foam board for the lid. Cake is just not doable at that angle. To secure your lid insert skewers diagonally from the back to the cake to secure it in place.You can then cover the holes with fondant or whatever other clever addition you can come up with.
