Vegas Cake

Okay I though this deserved a blog post all by itself. My birthday cake that is.  I ordered this cake (no I wasn't going to make my own) back in August and the time seems to have flown by.  The lovely Tracy from Fondant Fetish (check her out on facebook) makes incredible cake creations. What I love most about her work is the attention to detail. I don't have the time or patience for such little details. She makes all her own edible decorations and that's not easy. I've had a go - when I made my son's Skylander Portal cake I attempted to make 'crusher' and it was fiddly and very time consuming.  You can buy powder that makes the icing go hard but it never seems to work properly for me. 

We had a lovely, if not very noisy!, birthday meal last night (more of which tomorrow) at a Smith and Western restaurant. Whilst the food is okay - burgers, fajitas and the like - the décor is just perfect for families not to mention the fab-u-lous cocktails. I had a stallion (Matron!) and have no idea what was in it. All I know is that it was blue in colour and tasted delicious. We had a little room to ourselves in the jail area which kept the kids very entertained as they could push the bars apart. Much to the delight of my sister who happened to be seated next to it!  My dad also stole cowboy hats that he 'found' behind the bar. I did point out that it is general practice for money to exchange hands for the hats and I didn't think they were actually free. Still the kids loved them and like my dad said "they should be free!"

So without further ado... here is my most fabulous 40th birthday cake....

Wonderful attention to detail - The Killers symbol, roulette, chips, MGM lion, Elvis, Vegas Sign












I will post more pics tomorrow I have a full length shot of me with the hubster but he doesn't want to appear on the blog! I'll have to try and cut his head off!  Look at my huge arms - large or what! My dress is from Phase Eight and I wore it with knee high boots to dress it down a bit.

See you tomorrow....

  1. LOVE the cake. I know when M doesn't want to be on your blog ... it's because he doesn't want to make all your readers jealous because he's a hottie and you snared him.

  2. Amazing!! I had a Vegas wedding cake, which in retrospect was probably why my marriage lasted not much longer than a Vegas one..... But I did love the cake!

  3. Just found this... simply amazing. Did you make sure to post some photos to Twitter and do an @ with the various casinos in the photos? Probably get a retweet with a link to this.

    Everyone who loves Las Vegas should see this!
