This afternoon we put the finishing touches on the iPod cakes. The control buttons are made from white marshmallow fondant with the center being colored to match the frosting. I was lucky to be able to borrow some special cake decorating markers from my good friend Debby and that made it super easy to detail the volume. The ear buds are made from Good and Plenty candies and the wires are from some trimmed sour rainbow strip chews. My mom and I are happy that they give the impression of a classic iPod.
Now I hope my 10 year old niece loves them too!
