If any of you readers have made your way to this post by way of DC Rainmaker, you will fully understand why I chose to tackle this theme for his birthday cake this year. For everyone else, The Boss is pretty technology savvy (to say the least) and in the mix of all the technological gadgets that he toys with, his camera is ranked #1! Incase anyone just gasped, it is in my opinion, the camera is his favorite because if he didn’t have his camera he wouldn’t be able to take all of those product pictures of the Garmin, Polar, etc. that everyone else loves so much. So a long story short, I thought that a very appropriate cake for him this year would be an edible replica of his favorite tech toy!

While I am not super pleased and ecstatic with how the final product turned out, The Boss seemed to be really impressed. I think there are a lot of features on the cake that came together really well, but I definitely think this cake could be done again to be just a little bit more refined a little bit more detailed. For now, I am satisfied. Here is how it went.
(Yes, I created it so he could change lenses!)

And that is the end of the photo shoot! Haha that wasn’t funny was it? No? Ok, moving on...This cake was a lot of fun to make and most importantly it tasted GREAT! Double chocolate cake with raspberry filling and vanilla buttercream layers!
I hope you liked it too, and don’t hesitate to leave a suggestion if you would like to see a cake of a “certain theme” created in the future. Who knows, your creative idea might be the next cake featured here!
Happy Birthday Boss :)
