Do you sell this cake? Yes

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Used precoloured black & red fondant for more vibrant colours. The playing cards, die, chips & topper were all made from gum paste. I measured around the cake after I applied the fondant and marked on paper to get all my stripes & diamonds evenly spaced.

Hi. I used straight gum paste and laid them flat to dry. They were made well in advance so they really dry well
