Poker Cake


This poker cake was commissioned as a Birthday Celebration for a customer's boyfriend. She brought in a sample photo from a cake designer in England. The actual cake is a 14 inch square.

The playing cards on the top of the cake were hand drawn on sugar-crafted cards that I made and then inked with a food safe pen. I left the images in black and white, because I wanted the client to be able to have the cards as a keep sake and colors would fade after a while on the mantle top.

The poker chips were made with two circle cutters and a knife to make indentions around the rim of the coins.
