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'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.
