Slot Machine Birthday!

When my friend Michelle asked me to make her mom's 60th birthday cake, I was thrilled! She has been one of my best friends since 2nd grade and I always love making cakes for her.  (I think her favorite part is the frosting, but that's okay with me!) :) :) :)

I asked what type of decorations to put on the cake and Michelle suggested purses, shoes, or something casino related.  Honestly, I felt like the cake should actually be in the shape of a purse or shoe if I was going that route, but I didn't have time to make it that way, so I decided to go with the casino theme. 

Anyhow, here is the final product.  I found a Google image on the internet to give me an idea of how to make a slot machine. It was actually in the shape of a slot machine, but I needed this cake to serve 50 people, so no shaping here! Enjoy!


 Everything on this cake is made of buttercream frosting....no fondant. :)
 I also had the right colors of frosting left over from the luau cake, so I didn't have to make more!

 The cherries are my favorite part....I love cherries and can't wait to start pickin' them this summer!
Zennie, I hope you had a wonderful, wonderful 60th birthday!!!!!!!!!!!
