5 Cool Cake Ideas for All Kids


#1
iPod Cake

All the cool kids have iPods and now they can have it as their cake, too.

The trick to the iPod cake is in the details. The snazziest iPod cakes (or iCake?) are two layer sheet cakes that are stacked and covered with fondant (marshmallow fondant makes a good white iPod). For a simple iPod cake, bake a sheet cake and frost it with white frosting (or dye to the color or your birthday boy or girl's iPod). Looking for something even quicker? Pick up a plainly decorated sheet cake at your local supermarket and decorate.

Screens, menus and click wheels can be drawn on with decorating gels and piped frosting. Headphones sold separately.
