Birthday Wishes E-mail Laptop Cake
:) Laptop Birthday Cake :)
I got the idea for this laptop birthday cake because my oldest son seems to have been born with a laptop computer in his crib. He has been fascinated with computers since he could hold his head up. So what would be better for his birthday than a laptop computer e-mail greeting.
My kids only like my homemade cakes so no bakery cakes for us. I don't have fancy equipment or cake molds so we rely on creativity!
I began with a simple sheet cake baked in a 9 x 13-inch pan. When it cooled, I covered the entire cake with chocolate fudge frosting. Next, I made some butter cream and tinted it computer screen blue and some yellow for contrast. We made the keyboard keys and screen buttons with miniature marshmallows - making sure that we maintained the integrity of the keyboard layout!
The screen was put in place and a birthday message was added HB (Happy Birthday) :)(emoticon) WillyJL1 (my son's e-mail name).
The cake was a hit and the kids even "practiced" typing on it before we served the cake. Another great idea that was easy and fun!
