The Western Poker Cake
I had a blast making this cake! It was for a family friend who was having a 'Deadwood' themed party. SO we decided on a western poker cake. After laying down the green, I paneled the fondant and gave it a wood grain texture. The finishing touches were the hand made poker chips and playing cards that we personalized with edible images of a royal straight and the birthday boy's picture on a wanted sign! It was a huge hit...especially the flavor. We made it a chocolate stout bacon cake with caramel buttercream. The birthday boy wasn't huge on sweets but loves bacon...so it was super fun experimenting with the flavor!
