Hi

 

I wanted to make my cousin a Laptop Birthday Cake, but i'm not sure how to make the screen of the laptop that thin and staying upright? Any Suggestions?

 

Thank You

hi Harman you can try and do it with rice crispies treats,

or make  it a dummy cake

 

 

If I were making the screen, I would use either cardboard or foamcore board.  Since the keyboard is the only part that needs to be cake.  I use foamcore alot in my cakes, even as a base.  Good luck!

foamcore sounds like a great idea.  Lightweight and easy to cover with fondant

 

This is a silly question but what is foamcore?
I use foam all the time.  Used it yesterday in my sons cake very lightweight and it stands up well.  Be sure to use dowels though.
Harman - you can find foamcore board in the craft section of most mega stores (like Wal-Mart), office supply stores (like Office Max or Office Depot), or craft stores (like Michael's).  Some people call it "Display board".  It's basically 1/4" foam board with posterboard on either side.  Very lightweight and sturdy.  Good luck with your cake!
Great! Thanks I'm going to go to Micheal's and get the foamcore/display board.
