A bride wanted to surprise her fiance at the rehearsal dinner with a special cake which I found to be such a sweet gesture. Because he's a huge fan of Apple products, she knew she wanted it to be something Apple related so we decided on a cake that looked like his iphone.
Below's a side to side comparison. It looks pretty similar but I did make some alterations such as a plain gray background and changing the date and time to when the groom would be surprised with the cake at the rehearsal. The email notification is also off because I used an older screenshot of his phone and I made my letters on top too big to fit everything in but oh well.
To begin, I covered a 16" x 8" frosted cake (I used two 8" x 8" square cakes and put them next to each other) with black fondant. It's always tricky covering a cake in fondant and especially a cake of this size...you have to be very careful.
I then added a gray screen to the cake.
I next added my already made applications. I made them ahead of time because with the amount of detail involved, there would have been no way for me to make it after I made the actual cake. I included a few close-ups of my favorite apps...I had so much fun making them! I especially loved the apps within the apps because it was quite the challenge to make such tiny details.
If you're wondering how I made the details, I used a fondant tool set and my decorating tips/small cutters. I used the tips to cut out small circles and other basic shapes on fondant and then used to the tools to shape. In addition, I used edible markers for very very tiny details such as the numbers on the clock.
After applying the applications to the cake, I then added the finishing details.
