Edible Poker Chips and Dice


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 To Do:

Poker Chips

  1. Roll out a piece of red/black fondant. Use the bigger round cutter to cut out circles.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Repeat step 3 on all of your round fondant.
  5. Roll out a piece of white fondant and use your number cutter to cut numbers you desire on the poker chip.
  6. Use water to stick the number in the center of the poker chip.

Dicedice

  1. Shape a small piece of white fondant as in the shape of a dice.
  2. 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.
