Rack 'em Up!

Gladys asked me to do this cake for her son's birthday. I must admit, I've been wanting to do a cake like this for a while.
Everything on the cake is edible, even the pool ques and the balls
I made the balls out of fondant, skewered them with a tooth pick, and "painted" the balls (I can't say that without giggling) with a food safe marker. I tried my best to get the colors as accurate as possible, but the blue only goes so dark.
I even gave the cues a wood grain, and the table felt a slight texture to resemble the real thing.

I've been told that he almost didn't want to cut the cake, but hunger and a sweet tooth finally gave in. Gladys did show me a picture of Eddie with his cake... I've never seen a man so happy in my life.
