My boss is always glued to her iphone, I really wanted to do something nice for her so I tried to recreate a phone cake.
I made a sheet, regular vanilla cake. I used fondant to cover the cake initially. I then also used fondant to create the touch screen buttons for the ipone. The cake is completely flat, I cut out holes to stick in the touch screen buttons and used food coloring and water to paint on the screen pictures. I made it flat because I didn't want the buttons to stick out, because that is the neat part of the ipone that it is a touch screen.
I also used more water with the black where the screen is so it looked like it had a glare on it like a real cell phone would have. I do not have any cake experience, just from watching TV, so I am pretty proud of my creation. I hope you enjoy it!
I made this Calculator Cake for a friend’s husband who was celebrating a big event in his career as an accountant.
The bottom cake layer was made in a 9x13-inch pan and the top layer was made in a 6x9-inch toaster oven casserole pan. The cream cheese frosting was tinted with barely a drop of sky blue coloring. Notice how that made for a light green color as the frosting itself is quite yellow.
The calculator keys are blue and red fondant shaped with alphabet/number cut-outs. The display screen is green fondant with the number 1,000,000 piped in yellow icing. Although not visible in the photo, paper strips of candy buttons feed into the back like cash register tape. To complete the theme, we decorated the cake table with chocolate coins and paper money from a game.
The message: “you’re one in a million” is definitely true for this young couple.
I used an 13x9 pan and baked a store cake mix for this Telephone Cake. When cooled I cut the cake into about 3/4, one side being the address book and one being the phone. I cut the top off the address book part to even it out! I covered it in butter cream icing and then only covered the top with the fondant decorating it to match the address book the recipient of the cake owned.
I then noticed if I didn't even the other portion the cake it had the shape of the phone already, so I just copied the look of my phone and decorated with fondant. I painted the numbers and letters on with the black fondant gel (dye).
I did this cake cause my mother in law is known to always be on the phone! She loved it!
This Microphone Cake is a 9x13 base cake, with a cupcake/Twinkies combination for the microphone. I frosted the top of the microphone gray, but it didn't sparkle enough, so I covered it with the blue sparkles.
The handle of the microphone and the cord is just black buttercream.
