Poker Night Cake

poker night cakeThis poker night cake was was my second or third fondant cake, and I had so much fun making this one. This was a birthday cake I made for a friend of mine as a surprise. It is a white coconut cake with coconut Swiss meringue buttercream filling, and covered in fondant. The poker chips are gumpaste, the cards are 50% gum paste & 50% fondant, the Coors light bottle and cups are gum paste on a green fondant background. The spilled beer is color flow. The playing cards are all hand drawn with edible markers.

Blackjack Cake and Poker Cake

Don't get it on your white bischon frisse!

Poker Cake

I then took real cards to make a pattern for the cards and sized up the dice with real dice although they still came out a bit to big. I made the chips the same way. And BAM! I had a great Friday night poker cake!
