This Poker Table Birthday Cake was inspired by my son’s love for the game of poker. It was his 28th birthday, and I decided to make this cake after his girlfriend said the theme for his party was going to be a poker room. I made the cake the day before and put it in the freezer. I decorated it the next day. The black table was buttercream icing and the green table top, chips, cigars and cards are all made from fondant.

The cake is a vanilla cream with a hint of lemon. This cake was a lot of work. The cake was a hit and my son did not want to cut it, and the poker king was “All In” with a full house.
