Pool Table Birthday Cake

My daughter came up with this pool table birthday cake for her friend.

I used a box mix and baked according to directions in a 9" x 13" pan.

Let cool completely.

I used some kind of melon tool, I have no idea what it's called, but it made perfect holes in the 'table'.

I covered with green buttercream icing. Let dry a bit and then used the Viva! paper towel to smooth.
Then I used brown buttercream and covered the sides of the cake and made the top rail. I used a bag to put lots of icing for the rails.
I let it dry a bit and then used the paper towel on it also. Then I used a star tip and put a shell border around the bottom.

Then I used gum balls for pool balls and black icing with a #1 tip to make the triangle around the balls... so they wouldn't roll off!

I added 2 pieces of cut dowell rod for pool cues.

Next time I'm going to make the balls look as if they had just been broken with a couple in the pockets.

That is a good idea you had. It turned out so cute and so real looking. I liked the viva towel look, it turns out pretty good huh? You always come up with such good ideas, the gumballs are perfect for the balls. Glad your back. Love Nancy
