Treat your party guests to a cake they'll still be talking about at your next gathering. Infuse daring colours and bold designs into a fabulous casino cake. They'll clamour for a taste of the enticing treat you display. From simple to simply fabulous, you'll find the one that is perfect for your party.

Deck of Cards

Create the illusion of a deck of cards. Bake a two-layer cake and frost grooves into the sides with black frosting or just cut lines into the white frosting to give it the appearance of several cards. Decorate the top card as the back of the deck or as a face card flipped up. Show the deck of cards in a different light by decorating a large sheet cake to look like a joker or ace of spades. Frost a deck of miniature cards around the edge of the cake and top with sparklers.


Bake two rectangular cakes and position one on top of the other at an angle. Drape both cakes in fondant frosting. Colour a Jack on the top card and the corner of an ace on the bottom layer. Stick two matching cards from an actual deck into the corner of this winning "21" cake.


Fashion a roulette wheel from a large round cake. Include a fondant ball and number each of the slots. Place the delicious roulette wheel on top of a sheet cake with frosted grid and candy chips placed on the winning numbers. A simpler version can be made by frosting a round cake with black and red squares around the edges and a green centre topped with a fondant finial.

Craps and Poker Tables

Bake an 18-inch by 24-inch sheet cake for a large gathering. Frost the cake to look like a craps table. Use coloured candy wafers as casino chips. Make dice with fondant icing. Turn it into a poker table by frosting it green. Add hands of cards around the table. Lay "the river" across the middle and stack candy poker chips next to each hand of cars. Make a rim around the table with brown or black frosting.


Decorate two double-layer cakes to look like dice. Scoop small round pieces from the sides of the dice with a melon ball scoop. Drape white fondant icing over the dice. Colour in the indentations with black frosting or fudge. Serve the casino dice on a platter or sheet cake surrounded by frosted dice, candy poker chips and white chocolate playing cards.
