This cake was made for my mom’s 55th birthday (hence the pair of 5’s) plus green is her favorite color. I did 3 8″round cakes, leveled them out and covered them with a thin layer of fondant then placed them just slightly off center from each other (being careful to keep the weight all in the center so they wouldn’t crack).

Then I cut pieces of fondant and used a paint brush and gel food coloring to paint them green. I used a drop of water to apply them to the cakes. I cut out card shapes and chips from the fondant, colored them using the same paint brush method and attached them with a bit of water to stick.

This Poker pair cake was actually easy to make (I’m not a pro) and fun!
