I made this Poker Table Birthday Cake for a poker player. Fondant is made from MMF (Marshmallows), cards and chips are made from gumpaste. Image on the playing cards and poker chips were printed on icing sheets using edible ink. I used a ten inch spring form pan. Then I used a premade 10″ cardboard cut out of a octagon shape, placed it on top of the cake and cut the shape using a serrated knife, then cut horizontal in to three layers.
I placed cake on cardboard shape cut out, frosted cakeboard and each layer. Covered the cake in white fondant and let sit for about 30 min. Then I covered the cake in black fondant (to get the sheen of leather, knead shortening into the fondant). I cut the icing sheets and placed image on cards using water and a paintbrush, same for the poker chips. I individually cut out each circle and placed them on each poker chip. Three Layer Vanilla cake with Cafe Mocha Mousse Frosting.
