I've been requested to make a poker table cake in 2 weeks and have the hexagonal cake pan that will work great for the table but am clueless on how to go about making poker chips. Any ideas or advice would be appreciated? Thanks so much
I'll post a pick of the vegas cake I made in my galery if you want to see how they cake out. I cut gunpaste rounds (a larger colored one for the outside and a smaller white one for the inside) then used wilton's gumpaste writers (essentially a think royal icing) to complete the decoation on them.
I used a life-size round cookie cutter and cut out a bunch of fondant "poker chips." Then I stacked them together using a dab of water between each one, and used a food marker to 'mark' the sides of the chips so they looked authentic.
It was easy and not very time-consuming--plus the customer LOVED the chips!
I made a poker cake awhile ago -- I bought the poker kit (cards / chips ) from a dollar store and used those rather than making from fondant -- I glued the cards together before placing on the cake.
This is probably too late of a response, but I found a chocolate mold that had simple, thin circles - colored my chocolate and made my poker chips out of chocolate, piped on those little lines/denomonations and stacked them.
season 1 of cake boss, there is an episode where he makes poker chips and roulette table.
When I did my casino cake. I just added lots of 10X sugar to the BC I already had made so that it resembled Rolled Buttercream then I rolled it out, cut in circles and used edible markers to finish them off. This cake is in my pictures.
