Camera (Lumix GF1) Cake

I made this cake for my boss' friend's birthday.  Initially i wanted to have the camera-cake standing up but i was worried if the 'lens' of the cake could hold up even with dowels..esp. when the chocolate cake i baked was quite soft.  After much thought, i decided to lie the cake flat...that way i don't have to worry about the lens not holding up. :)  I modeled this cake after my own camera. :)

Cake is made of Devil's Food Cake, Chocolate Buttercream & Chocolate Ganache.  I'm quite happy with this cake. Although it is not 100% perfect, at least it is what i had in mind.  My "paint-writing" needs major improvement...LOL!

Thanks so much everyone for your lovely and kind comments! I really appreciate it! :D

@Vicki: took me 7 hours to frost and decorate the cake (not including baking time..since i have only 1 oven that can only take in 1 pan at a time..)

@Jacqueline: Thank you! You & Juanita are my inspiration!

Faithy, you are completely amazing!

And, um, has anyone ever accused you of being a perfectionist? Because, seriously, this cake is A-mazing. Definitely not a "could do better".

Such a labour of love at over 7 hours!
I hope the audience was duly impressed.
