I RECIEVED A REQUEST FOR A 30TH BIRTHDAY CAKE IN THE SHAPE OF A POKER TABLE WITH ALL THE ACCENTS CHIPS ETC... THIS CAKE NEEDS TO FEED ABOUT 100 PEOPLE. I THOUGHT ABOUT A 15 INCH HEXAGON TO START WITH DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY CREATIVE IDEAS TO MAKE THIS CAKE ONE TO REMEMBER FOR THIS GENTLEMAN......
okay, i just checked out your pictures and saw your fondant girl so i know you can do this....
make a round or square cake for about 70 people
place a cake (hexagon) on top of that for 30 people - the poker table
make a fondant person that resembles the birthday boy and have him sitting at the table
you can then put cards around the table and a pile of poker chips in front of him - HE WON!
you could also make tiny cigars and beer cans to put on the table
it might be more work than you want to do but it would be very personalized!
be sure to post the picture!!!
I have a poker cake in my photos that might help with making the chips!
I have one in my photos as well, the chip were mmf made with a tip #6 and I just cut little rectangles out of the mmf for the cards.
I just saw a Food Network Challenge show on wedding cakes and one or two teams made terrific-looking poker table cakes. I think you could find it on www.foodnetwork.com . Good luck! I'm sure it will be great.
Thanks for the feed back. i"ll post the picture of the cake as soon as it's done. The idea of having the people sitting around cake sounds like a cool idea. THANKS!!!!!!!
i did a poker table all w/ fondant, check it out in my photos, it was very easy!!!
