Laptop cake

This cake wore me out! I had to do the screen like four different times! I tried pastillage, fondant and gum tex, and then I finally resulted to candy clay, phew! I stuck wooden skewers through the screen to help support it. Other than that, this lappy is completely edible.

Yellow cake with swiss meringue buttercream, covered in marshmallow fondant. Keyboard is chocolate candy clay. White screen is fondant. Royal icing and edible marker used for letters. I used a cutdown credit card to make the touch pad indention.

The birthday girl liked lime, so I went with that, since there are some lime laptops out there. This laptop is not really a pc or mac, it's just really a conglomeration of a bunch of google photos I looked at, which was not necessary since we have like 3 or 4 working and non-working laptops hanging around here.
