post #1 of 8 my friends have decided they want a poker tournament baby shower. The mom to be doesn't want a lot of frilly/cutesy stuff...eventhough she is having a girl. 'buy in' to the tourney you must bring a gift. So, the more gifts you bring the more chances you have to play.

This is a first for me to hear anything like this.....

Any recommendations....? I couldn't wait to make my first baby shower cake...all cute and everything. Now, it has turned into a poker tournament....ha ha.

Two thoughts:
make a poker table cake with a fondant baby sleeping on top; or make a cute baby cake with a few playing cards and poker chips scattered around it. Sounds like the mom-to-be may appreciate option 1, while you'd like to do option 2. icon_smile.gif

I like those ideas. I was thinking so much poker table stuff...but hadn't thought about sticking with a cute cake and just adding poker elements. Like it!

How about one of your TT cakes in felt green with poker chip polka dots and a gumpaste baby (similar to one of your monkeys) holding a hand of cards or sitting on a deck of cards as a topper - inscription could be something like ~ good luck with your full house

I am sure what ever you make will be great.
Good luck!

I changed my mind...the baby should be showing her cards and the inscription should be...Full House, Baby!
