    This is something I always wanted to try and after some trial and error I came up with this one. Just in case it's not completely obvious: I loooooooove cupcakes :p

    I used a PVC tray to hold the iPad, it fits Apple's smart cover as well. All ports are easily accessible. Somehow I couldn't resist to use a cupcake print to line the inside ;)

    They sell them in my local computer centre for about US$ 8.- per piece. I have seen them on ebay as well. There are 2 versions, one can be used together with Appple's smart cover :)

    I made a more 'manly' cover using a DIY book today - the glue is still drying. I'll post some pictures tomorrow :)
    After having a coffee with the owner of the used book store nearby, she promised me to put all damaged Kindle and iPad sized hardcover books aside for me :D
