    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.”

    That will keep you busy for the rest of the day - then we need some photos. Then I'll email you my address and you can post me a piece!!

    What apps are you going to put on your iPad cake Home screen? iPad1 or iPad2? I was in Perth (Scotland) a couple of weeks ago and, in the hotel where I was staying, there was a young boy celebrating his birthday and he had a cake made in the shape of Thomas The Tank Engine. His mother said that she had a friend who boasted she could make a cake to any design given the details. Could be a market....

    I think it's your next career, Hayley....

    In mine and yours, I'm afraid, the real talent would be my sister in law, she made the black/choc cat for my daughters birthday. I had a few comments I remember but it did taste nice. She's real talented but not in the same league as some of these guys. That is real art, but I would never pay that for something you would eat and have nothing to show for it, my grannies words are coming out now!

    It would stick a picture of one on a shop bought cake....that is the extent of my artistic talents. Nahhhh, I would just eat the shop bought one and continue playing with my iPad.
