Coolest Poker Chip Birthday Cake

I did this Homemade Poker Chip Birthday Cake on a whim for my husband’s poker night because I wanted to try out a new cake recipe. I had been searching around for a recipe that kept the cake more compact when cutting.

This recipe used a box cake but I added a few extra ingredients to add to the density of the cake. The texture was better, but the flavor wasn’t as great as I would have liked. I made two 9″ cakes. I covered one in green fondant and added the white fondant details. The white fondant dots on the sides of the poker chips were made using a big straw to punch out the circles. The other white fondant details were cut out freehand, but cookie cutters could be used.

For the second cake, I carved out part of the middle section for the chip indentation, using a circular lid as my guide. Then I covered it in blue fondant and added the same white fondant details. I set the blue cake onto the green cake, off-setting it slightly so that the green cake’s details could be seen.

  1. Very creative … hope you don’t mind if I borrow your idea – will give you credit for it. On large cake batters, you can use this recipe: Kakeladi’s Original Wasc (White Almond Sour Cream) Cake. Everyone loves the flavor and density of it.

  2. Great cake! Simple, yet very impressive. I’m planning to make one like this for my husband’s birthday. Thanks for posting.
