Dominoes Cake

A couple of my generous friends who sponsored me in the Rope for Hope asked to cash their cake in for Father’s Day. It was for an Opa who likes to play cards and dominoes. Cards seemed pretty intricate, so I opted for a dominoes theme.

It was a square vanilla cake, and I used marzipan to cover it with the hope that it would look a bit like a card table. I made the dominoes out of white fondant, using an edible black marker to draw all the dots.

I actually had to look up the rules again to make sure I was going to be placing them correctly!
