Andriod Tablet

Android Tablet

The box is a cake cut into an oblong and covered in white sugarpaste.

The cake drum is covered in light brown sugarpaste and embossed with wood grain and painted with edible brown food colours to achieve a wood effect (see our video on how to do this here)

The tablet is made from black flower / modelling paste rolled to approximately ¼” thick, cut to size and left to dry. The Android tablet screen is made from an edible icing image as well as the Android logos on the sides of the box. You can order your own personalised icing sheets using our online editor.

When the cake and the tablet are dry they can be assembled and the edible icing image can be attached using edible glue.
