4-6 Tb water

To design the pie, I grabbed an image of an iPad from the internet and manipulated it using Adobe Photoshop. Icons were reorganized based on feasibility and a spiffy background was inserted. Finally, the threshold and black levels were adjusted leading to a black & white outline of the image. This was printed out onto a sheet of blank paper, according to the size of the cookie sheet I intended to use (10" x 15"). Remember the image should be reversed (mirror image).

Next, take the printout and tape it into position on the cookie sheet. Using a sheet of wax paper, completely cover the image and secure into place with tape.

Step 3: Preparing the white chocolate

Using a double boiler to avoid scorching, melt the white chocolate. I used a smaller pot sitting inside a larger pot since I do not own a double boiler.
Tempering the chocolate increases its strength and also results in a nice glossy coat. To temper the chocolate, place 2/3 of the chocolate into the double boiler and melt to a temperature of 110F. Once this temperature is reached, add the remaining 1/3 of chocolate to bring the temperature down to ~84F. Finally, replace the pot of chocolate to the heat for a few seconds to bring the temperature back up to 87F. Do not exceed 87F.
