It was my brother-in-laws birthday and he came to visit us from Florida. He's a huge bowler, it's practically his passion so I decided why not make this cake for his birthday. He's not much of a cake person, but he sure loves my sugar cookies which is what I made the bowling pins out of. I made a devils food chocolate cake with buttercream icing. I hand painted the ball and the cake to make it look like a floor. Take a look.....
Then I realized I didn't have anywhere to write "Happy Birthday" so my husband suggested I do it on a pin.
Here's a side view

My brother-in-law is not a big cake person but he loved it! We did too!
