Easy DIY Laptop Cake

I made this Laptop Cake for a friend’s daughter’s birthday. She wanted a laptop cake. The bottom portion is a “funfetti” cake mix. The bottom of the laptop is made of cereal treats and the “screen” of the laptop is made of foam core. The laptop is covered in fondant with fondant accents. I used “retro” sugar candy letters to spell out Happy Birthday.

The cake is iced in butter cream and decorated with fondant accents. I used Wilton’s icing that was pink/lavender combination for the border. My friend put a graphic on the “screen” of the laptop to fit her daughter’s party theme.

If I do a cake like this again, I will need to find a better solution for the “screen”, it was difficult to keep it standing, until the icing hardened a bit and then it was still a little “wonky”.

This cake was a hit! My friend and her family loved!
