Las Vegas themed wedding cake ....

This is for a friend of our daughter who was married in Las Vegas in November. Tonight they are having a party / reception with a Las Vegas theme.


The design was left up to me and my only brief was that it should be "tastefully tacky" !! ;o))


10" rich fruit cake, 8" and 6" madeira with vanilla buttercream and all covered in marzipan and fondant icing.

The bottom 12" tier is a dummy as we wanted the look of a big cake but didn't need all that amount of actual cake !


All decorations are in fondant or gumpaste. What this photo doesn't really show is that there are teeny silver stars and crystals on the base board and the Las Vegas sign has crystals round the edge to simulate lights. As I have never played poker, I'm sure I have the denominations for the chips totally wrong ! :o))

Bottom tier has card suite symbols, 2nd tier has poker chips, 3rd tier has playing cards and the top tier has slot machine symbols. Roulette wheel is made of fondant and gumpaste.


I'm off now to deliver and set it up and then I will be back home to put my glad rags on, as we have been invited to the party ! :o))
