Hacked IPhone Birthday Cake

I made this cake for my husbands 27th birthday.  He's a HUGE Apple fanatic and at the time we both had jailbroken iPhones on the TMobile network... So I made this cake to replicate his phone.
The date = his age.

Needless to say he loved it and didn't want to cut into it.
Inside was vanilla cake with vanilla custard & fresh strawberry filling.

Made entirely on my own using fondant on the outside to create the icons and phone.

    this is an awesome idea! I have some friends that work at Apple and i think they would appreciate an iphone cake!

    Thanks everyone for the comments! :)

    Angela- I actually bought it brown and tinted it black. It took lots of food coloring. Black fondant is really a pain! :)
