Texas Hold'em Birthday Cake
I received a request to bake a cake for a husband's birthday. He loves to play Texas Hold'em, so we decided on a Texas Hold'em design for the chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream frosting. This brought back the fun memories of the days during college when I used to play Texas Hold'em with my friends in LA/SD. One time, I had two queens and two more came out. Boy, was I lucky! Then there was a time I tried to play at the tables in Vegas, but lost all my money rather quickly (even before the second card was shown. They must've known I was a newbie. I suppose I'm not as good at bluffing as I should be to play real Texas Hold'em. I learned the hard way -- that was the last time I played Texas Hold'em. But I think making this cake was just as fun, and I didn't lose any $! :-)
The poker chips were made of fondant, the cards were actual playing cards.
