iPhone Cake

I went for my cousin’s 10th birthday party today. I remember getting her toys and such when she was much younger. And i realised that in the recent years, i don’t know what to get her anymore – she’s such a big girl now! It was so much easier getting her something when she was half her age. And i don’t know what 10 year old girls these days like, with all the new trends and cartoons.

Though it has been a hectic past week, i really wanted to bake her a cake on her 10th birthday. She never does expect anything from me at all, but i know if i were to bake her a cake, it would mean a lot to her. I came up with a couple of ideas – from Monopoly Deal (“It’s My Birthday” Card) to an iPhone. Initially i wanted to keep it as a surprise but i couldn’t help myself to ask her what she’d prefer. It was a difficult choice for her, but she decided on the iPhone instead – since she can’t have the real one 😛

So on thursday, i baked the vanilla cake – her favourite! And on friday, i layered the cake, carved the cake, added buttercream, and covered the cake with fondant. Finally this morning, i made all the details – mainly the apps. I used fondant to make some of the default apps and her 2 favourite games – Angry Birds & Scramble 2.

2.5x the actual size! Just that the thickness of the iPhone cake was not in proportion, otherwise it’ll be really really thin! And i need to feed quite a number of people 😛

I only told my aunt a few days in advance about the cake plans, that’s why there was another cake besides the one i made.

I brought the cake to the venue at about 350pm. Was stuck in a massive jam. I planned to reach at 3!

Boy this cake was a crowd pleaser. The feedback was amazing.

After singing the birthday song, all the kids were chanting “Cut the Angry Birds! Cut the Angry Birds!” Haha, it was rather amusing.

Cut right across!

This was the cute part. All of my cousin’s friends were crowding around, asking for a particular app! It was so funny! You could hear them shout “I want the iPod! I want the Angry Birds!” Should’ve made more apps. Heheheh.

It was going so fast.

What made everyone laugh was that my iPhone cake was gone in less than 5 mins and the other cake my aunt bought was untouched! Hahahahaha!

My dear Ray Yi with a slice of the cake. She chose the iPod app! 🙂

To my favourite cousin: I hope this cake i made you made your party really fun and really special. I love you 🙂

  9. hello!! i chanced upon your blog via fb and i really admire your baking skills! i’ve never baked cakes before, so i would like to if it’s hard to do this iPhone cake? and how did you mould the apps? the colours are so real!!

    • awww thank you!
      it’s not hard, but it just takes time.
      it’s just about tinting the fondant, and slicing them into shape slowly!

      • hmm well the thing is i don’t have any baking materials like the cutter and stuff like that. and i don’t know where to get them. it’d be lovely if i could order one from you instead! you’ve got serious talent there. do you think you have time to do one sometime during end of august?

      • hi regina,
        you don’t need fancy tools! maybe just a ruler and a small knife to cut out the details!
        you could try phoon huat, they have many things there!
