I made this Laptop Monster Computer Cake for my 13 year old grandson. He is one of twins and he likes browsing the Internet. He also likes the look of Monster Energy drinks logo so I decided to combine the two.
The bottom is a 11×18 sheet cake. The laptops bottom is a 9×13 cut to fit. The lid is a sugar cookie that had two bamboo skewers baked into it. I outlined and flooded the back of the lid with dark chocolate royal icing. The Monster logo on the back is flooded with colored royal icing. I then drilled two holes in the cake board so the lid stood by itself and I put the rest of the cake around it.
The rest of the cake is iced with IMBC frosting that was smoothed with paper toweling. The key board is 3 Hershey dark chocolate bars with piped on frosting. The screen is the only thing what was not edible. It is a desktop photo shot that was laminated. The bottom sheet was woodgrained with dark brown coloring mixed with water and brushed on with a chip brush.
This cake was very challenging but the end was worth every minute. My grandson loved it and that was everything to me!
