I have to make an iphone cake this weekend and it's too late to order an edible image online and the local grocery store won't print it unless I provide a letter from apple stating it's ok to print the image of the iphone screen.

who do I contact though??

Wow I have no idea... Here is a bump, so maybe someone else can help.

Could you maybe make it out of fondant and either paint it on or use food markers. I don't know, just a suggestion icon_smile.gif

Steve Jobs secretary? LOL I have no idea. Can you find contact info online for the marketing department?

You could try writing to the Apple help department, I've heard Steve Jobs has been known to answer emails himself sometimes.

Given your level of urgency I would recommend calling them. Best of luck

Thanks so much, I've emailed them and hopefully will hear back soon. I managed to find someone to print the edible image for me, but I'd really like to have permission before I go ahead and use it! I hate the thought of "stealing" something from someone.

I wouldn't wait for an email I'd give them a call. Emails to big business takes days or weeks to get a response to,
