Your iPhone can never look so delicious! The iPhone biscuits are about 12cm long and 6cm wide, made by Kumiko Kudo, the 44 year-old owner of bakery Green Gables in Aizumi town.
The icons are drawn using red, green and blue icing. Looks yummy doesn’t it?
The idea for the biscuits came from one of her customers, who asked her to make a look-a-like of the iPod touch media player for her husband’s birthday gift in October 2008.
Kudo mistook the gadget for the very similar iPhone, which had just appeared on the market, but the customer was delighted by the end product.
News of Kudo’s creation did not spread widely until a message on the Internet micro-blogging site Twitter in January by the well-known economic critic Kazuyo Katsuma.
With that, news of her edible iPhone cookies spread quickly.
When Kudo was invited to an event held by Softbank Corp. in March, she handed President Masayoshi’s son one of the biscuits, who had earlier posted on his Twitter saying: “I want one!”. Upon receiving his iPhone cookie he was overjoyed: “I’m so happy. I cannot possibly eat this,” he said.
Kudo, who makes all her own cakes and biscuits, says she can create no more than 20 iPhone cookies a day. One biscuit is priced at 2,730 yen, including tax.
Kudo has received requests for iPad cookies. She said she has experimented, but “it turned out to be too big, heavy and difficult to make.”
Looks yummy! The actual iPhone cost way more than that xD. It would be perfect for a gift for friends :)
