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
Medium circle cutter
Very small circle cutter
Black edible marker
A small rectangular book
Paintbrush and water
These are the steps:
Roll out black gumpaste.
Keep it about half an inch thick.
Place a small rectangular book on top of your gumpaste.
Use a pizza cutter or knife to cut around it.
You may have to cut out a little more to get the desired size.
It’s good to keep a real ipod nearby, for quick reference.
Roll out white gumpaste.
Cut out a square piece and a circular piece.
Use a knife to cut out the sides of the square piece until you are left with a rectangular piece.
This will be the ipod’s screen.
Brush some water near the top of the black gumpaste piece.
Stick this white rectangular piece here.
Align it properly with the help of the edge of a knife.
Brush some water below the screen and stick the white circular piece here.
Press a very small circle cutter in the center of this big circle.
But don’t remove this piece.
You just need the circular design there.
Use an edible marker to draw the details on the white circular piece.
And you are done!
Feel free to print out the company logo or whatever you like on edible paper and stick that on top of the rectangular screen. This way, your ipod will look even more realistic.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
Happy caking everyone!
