on starless nights, I’ll keep shining on you  

My grandfather turned 80 this weekend. This, of course, is a huge deal. No matter how busy I am with my own life, I put family first and put a break on everything else.. And made him a cake.

A casino cake.

If you couldn't tell from the cake, my grandfather loves casinos. While he's not a wild and out of control gambler, he does enjoy going out and playing. Especially the card games. So I focused on that with this cake. Everything you see on this cake is edible. I created the cards and tokens from fondant and painted on them with food coloring.

He really seemed to like the cake, which made the whole day, night, and early morning's labor well worth it. Not to mention his favorite flavors were in the cakes; the top was Red Velvet and the bottom was Spice with Cream Cheese frosting. Here's to many more, Pap pap.

:O That cake is majestic. No joke though, that cake is beautiful. If I was your grandfather, I'd be thrilled to get a cake like that. I'm sure he loved it.

...and I'm sure it tastes delicious too. :D Great job. :)

Thank you ♥ Everyone seemed to love it. It's already wiped out.

Can't believe I forgot to take pictures of the inside. It was cut into 4 layers with cream cheese frosting between each.
