I made this cake for my husband's co worker who was retiring. He loves to gamble and play cards. Icing is buttercream. The little card table on top of the cake is actually a little key chain I found. It opens up and has miniature cards and poker chips that can actually be played with! I thought the green color of the icing was really gross at first, but I didn't mind it so much once I got the cards, poker chips and money on it.
