What in particular is your question?
How to make the keys?
How many servings?
What are you having difficulties with?

I have made a keyboard before when making a laptop cake. I measured and made each key individually out of black fondant and then piped on the letters and punctuation after. It was very time consuming but looked great once it was all done. In hindsight I think using gumpaste would have worked better as the keys would've had a more crisp shape, but was one of the first big cakes I did so wasn't familiar with using gumpaste then. I would like to post the photo of the cake but haven't worked out how yet, will look into it as have step by step photos.

I have just added the photos of the laptop cake, it may take a while for you to be able to view them, but if you search for Laptop you should see it, I have also added the picture of the keys before I had added them to the cake.

I think a normal keyboard is a musical instrument.

I've made one with Kit Kat bars for the black keys and redipped them in black chocolate.
