Calculator Birthday Cake!

Thu (pronounced "to") had requested a cake from me for her husband's 30th birthday! Her husband is an Accountant so she wanted a cake that defines his profession... a Calculator Cake!

The flavor of this cake is red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. I covered the cake with rolled fondant then added the keys. Each number and sign is piped by hand. The screen shows 7,22 which defines Thu's husband's real birthday. On the top right corner of the screen, I added the brand name "SHARP". The paper scroll is made out of rice crispies and then it is covered with fondant. The sides of it is accented to make it look like a real "paper scroll". The cake didn't feel complete till I added the No.2 pencil and the yellow folder that labels "Birthday Expense".

Thu absolutely loved the cake when she saw it. She loved the vibrant colors and she was surprised to see the details of the pencil and the folder.
