PF (Power Factor) of circuit = 1

This cake was designed for a very lovely lady, Melinda, who turned 21 last week! Since she is currently racking her brain at South Dakota State University doing Electrical Engineering, I decided to humor her with a  circuit board cake.

It isn't coincidence that she's taking a power electronics class this semester so I asked Mark (my husband) to bring home one of his dummy circuit boards for inspiration.  He did and the cake above is what I came up with.

Simply put, Melinda is trying to figure out the power factor of the circuit while her Professor looks on.

PS: This cake also raised a few eyebrows at Mark's workplace as they couldn't imagine seeing an edible version of a circuit board that they build everyday, lol.
