Phew; Summer is winding down and I finally have a free moment to sit and write out a quick post! (I have a few saved up from the summer that I will get around to this month!) Even as I'm sitting here the dog is whining at the door wanting a walk, so this will just be a quick taste of a really cute cake! 

A friend of the Family is turning 21 this weekend and to celebrate he is taking a trip to Sin City with some Friends, we decided that a blackjack cake was the perfect fit for his poker tournament birthday! 

 I used edible markers and gum paste to make the cards and the poker chips, drawing out the queen was the funnest part of the cake for me! I had three decks of cards all lined up trying to decide on the most classic looking Queen. (Needless to say my M&M cards with the blue M&M wearing a crown, or the Star Wars, Princess Leia decks didn't make the cut!)

The backs of the cards were decorated with the Birthday boys favourite website, "The Chive" I got quite a few questions from the older generation what the Chive was, my response: "It's like Pinterest for  Men, more humor, way less weddings"

Anyway I've got a really big project coming up this week so its back to the kitchen to bake!

Happy Baking everyone!
