I decided to surprise my daughter’s boyfriend and make him a cake for his 25th birthday. He likes to play poker so I figured I would try to make a poker chip cake.

I used 2 round cakes. I then used buttercream icing to cover both cakes. I used colored fondant for the cake as well as the shapes. I put a little bit of buttercream icing on the back of the shapes to hold them to the cake. I then decided to cover the aluminum foil with red fondant.

This was the hardest of all the cakes for some reason. But, he was very surprised and he liked it.
