I love making birthday cakes for my son. This year for this 8th birthday, he requested a pool table cake. I asked if he wanted a 'funny' cake. He replied by saying he wanted a 'blue' colour pool table top instead of the traditional green. Why? So that the 'pool' table would look like a swimming pool with a shark inside (hence the fin). LOL. Every edible part of this cake was made of Bakel fondant and the cake was a chocolate mud cake. I covered the cake board with red and white coloured fondant squares. The base of the pool table, the cake board and cutting the cue stick to length were my son's project (with daddy's help).
