After I made my sister's wedding cake I didn't make anything for a while. But the fire to bake was still there in my heart. When a birthday came up in the family, I'd jump at the chance to practice creating cakes. So when my brother-in-law's birthday rolled around, I was excited to try something new. He was in his first year of college so I wanted to do something fun and unique. I decided to do an open laptop on top of a book (seemed very collegiate). I wrote "Happy Birthday Bryan" on the monitor of the computer. It turned out great and I really think he was surprised! Family birthdays have always been a great time for me to try new ideas.
