Edible iPhone for Ruth's Birthday 
Homemade modeling chocolate for front & back of the iPhone. I added black food coloring to dark 60% cocoa Ghirardelli baking disks when I melted it, then mixed in the corn syrup. The white is candy melts.

iPhone icons painstakingly painted with food coloring. Painting on chocolate is difficult because the surface is waxy so the liquid beads on the surface. Also I obviously need new fine point brushes (argh! :P ) AND my food coloring pens are all mostly run dry!

Back of iPhone gently molded around cooled rice crispy marshmallow treats, then painted silver with luster dust and vodka. I used leftover buttercream icing from my freezer stash to anchor the chocolate to the marshmallow treats.

Ear speaker (?) and bottom button added to front of iPhone. I had wanted to recess all the icons, but I knew I would run out of time, so only the bottom 4 are recessed into the black. The others are glued on with melted Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Silver text added to front of iPhone. Since my brushes were toast, I used a wooden toothpick to write with the silver luster dust. The silver text on pale silver background at the bottom was a challenge. Note the time is 7:30pm, the time I planned to give this to the birthday girl.

Edible iPhone gift package for Ruth's birthday. The Edible iPhone was made this size to fit in the opening weekend iPhone bag/box I had acquired when Ruth bought her iPhone. A full cake size version would have been easier to draw the fine detail for text & icons, but I thought this was MUCH funnier!
