Those of you who are more familiar with this entertainment sensation can tell me if I got it right...but I think the happy little girl who got it for her birthday party was confirmation enough:).

chocolate and vanilla buttercream,
yellow stars/screen: gumpaste
My plan was simple enough...make the computer screen out of gum paste, stick it in the cake, voila. Little did I know that gum paste can sometimes soften when it's in direct contact with cake and icing for prolonged periods.
Thankfully, there is aluminum foil and plastic wrap for such occasions. I averted last minute disaster by wrapping the bottom of the screen and it worked just fine.

I'm sure I didn't do it according to the great pastry book they have at the French Culinary Institute, but I learned something. I survived, and the cake looked pretty darn good at the end of the day.
