Here is a technique that you might use.

The "screen" part is NOT edible.

take a picture of your computer screen with a camera

print it out & trim to the size needed, glue it onto a piece of cardboard

roll out your fondant to make a "frame" for the screen, which goes around the edge of the cardboard - I added some Tylose to the fondant for stiffness

I "glued" the screen onto the back edge of the keyboard with royal icing.

Hope this is helpful! thumbs_up.gif
