Computer Birthday Cake

A customer asked if I could make a birthday cake for her husband who works at Hewlett Packard.  He fixes computer, servers, etc.  I asked what his favorite color is and went to work.  I started with a chocolate sheet cake with vanilla buttercream icing.  I placed the Hewlett Packard logo in the middle and used red tinted buttercream to fill it in. 

I made a laptop using graham crackers for the base.  I covered it with fondant and made the screen look like it had exploded with wires coming out…

I also used graham crackers to make a tower.  Again I covered it with fondant and made some wires to look like they needed repairing…

It was pretty fun to make computer parts for this cake.  Happy Birthday, Mr. A!
