This Slot Machine Cake Idea was a first for me. My Mom turned 75 and she loves slots, so I went for it. This was very large. I used 2 whole sheets ( 4 halves) for the base and 4 10″ rounds for the top, domed section. I used chocolate whipped icing for the inside and white buttercream for the outside and then sprayed it with edible coloring. The only fondant I used was for the buttons, windows and lever handle, fondant just seems too heavy for me, but that’s just my opinion.
I used dowels and heavy cardboard for support between the layers but next time I would use plastic instead. The cardboard got a little soft…oops. All in all, for the first time, I think it turned out really well and my Mom was happy, that’s what mattered.
