It was my Dad’s birthday, and having to come up with a theme for his party was no easy task. There’s nothing that he particularly likes, nor does he have any hobbies. However, he does enjoy hitting the tables once in a while. I decided to go with a casino theme and made some poker chip and dice cupcakes for him.
What You Need:
For Poker Chips
- Fondant (red, white, black)
- Gumpaste (mix a bit with the fondant to harden it)
- Round cutters (two sizes)
- Number cutter
- White Fondant
- Black food coloring gel
What To Do:
- Roll out a piece of red/black fondant. Use the bigger round cutter to cut out circles.
- Set the smaller round cutter in the middle of the round fondant, press it down half way, just enough to leave a circle mark on the fondant.
- Cut out small white rectangles and stick six of them on to the area between the outer and the inner circle with water. Space them out evenly.
- Repeat step 3 on all of your round fondant.
- Roll out a piece of white fondant and use your number cutter to cut numbers you desire on the poker chip.
- Use water to stick the number in the center of the poker chip.
- Shape a small piece of white fondant as in the shape of a dice.
- Draw the black dots on the dice with a toothpick and the black food coloring gel. If the end of the toothpick is pointy, you can cut off the end with a pair of scissors to create a round flat end.
* make sure the number and sequence of the dots is correct. One is always across from six, two is always across from five and three is always across from four.
