Brian's 30th Birthday

Brian's 30th birthday was last month and we decided to have a surprise party for him. The kids all chipped in to color and draw on the banner as well as Sean and Laura.

Sean made Brian this awesome cake. We are huge Lord of the Rings fans and so when Sean was trying to decide what kind of cake to make he came up with the One Ring.
I borrowed 12" round cake pans from a friend who bakes them professionally. I made a chocolate cake and a vanilla cake and bought some bavarian creme filling from the cake shop. I was also able to get some gold shimmer powder to mix with vanilla and brush on. I gave the cake and supplies to Sean and he worked his magic... he was cutting the cakes and ended up slicing half way through his finger... so the cake was definitely with his blood, sweat and tears. LOL

Notice Sean in the background with his bandaged finger.

The surprise came out pretty good. He suspected a little I think, but quite a few people came, so that at least surprised him.
