The Monopoly man is sculpted out of gumpaste. It was a little challenging turning a 2-D character into a 3-D figurine and I wanted to capture his panache so I gave him outstretched arms and a kicked up foot.
I made the cards and poker chips out of gumpaste and decorated them with edible markers.
I modeled the little monopoly pieces- car, thimble, scotty dog, top hat and iron in fondant and silvered them with edible luster dust. I also made the dice to read the number of his birthdate- which was the 5th. Little piles of fondant Pez were placed here and there to complete the cake.
