iPhone and iPad Cakes and Cookies are in Hot Demand in China
We haven’t had an iPad-as-confectionary story for a while, so here’s a cute story from Cult of Mac about a gourmet dessert shop in Beijing, China, where iPhone and iPad cakes and cookies are selling like, um, hot cakes! And apparently, the shop’s owner, Carol Chow, says that she too, like Apple, is plagued by cheap knock-off copies of her bespoke products! Chocolatier Carol sells her designer cakes for prices ranging from $30 to more than $465, but says that she has noticed other shops have sprung up in China that she says are copying her customised cakes. It takes Carol hours to make just one iPhone cookie, which costs 228 yuan, or approximately $35.
“I made iPhone and iPad desserts because they are really popular at the moment,” Chow told NTD television. “People all want it but most of them can’t get it. So I think it’s fun to make cookies or cakes of them.”
