How to make an edible ipod cake topper

One of the things I enjoy most about cake decorating is seeing the looks on people’s faces when I tell them something very realistic such as this ipod is actually edible.

I  left the screen blank but you can print the company’s logo or something fun on edible paper and stick it on the screen.

To make this ipod, you will need the following supplies:

Black gumpaste or 50/50
White gumpaste or 50/50
Square cutter
Medium circle cutter
Very small circle cutter
Knife
Rolling pin
Black edible marker
Pizza cutter
A small rectangular book
Paintbrush and water

These are the steps:

Step 1:
Roll out black gumpaste.
Keep it about half an inch thick.

It’s good to keep a real ipod nearby, for quick reference.
