Poker Cake

It's March again and every year I make my friend Dominic his birthday cake.
Last year he chose the Born In The USA album cover as he is an obsessive fan of The Boss, this year though he had something else on his mind...  Poker.
Being an avid Poker fan, along with so many people these days it seems, he gave me specific details that he wanted on the cake, the playing cards for example were to be the PKR design, this part I understood, but for the actual hand that had been dealt, in the flop, turn & river (I hope my small amount of poker knowedge won't go unnoticed here!) as well as the cards dealt to the players, I was lost!  According to Dominic, the cards that he chose to be on view would allow either a 'Ghostbusters' hand or a 'Gremlins' hand to be on offer, both of these things mean nothing to me but apparently they won't mean anything to most people as they seem to be some kind of private Poker joke between his mates... I'm sure it's hilarious if you're 'in the know'!

Anyhoo... more about the cake... filled with 3 layers of vanilla sponge and lashing of raspberry jam it was a massive hit with his mates which is the best part of cake making!  It put a smile on Dominic's face too :)
