Rated 5 out of 5 by from My stepdad is the pool shark in our family so this was the perfect birthday cake for him. I covered the cake in buttercream instead of fondant since I don't like working with large pieces of fondant. It turned out wonderfully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was such a fun cake to make, I found that if you could fold in the corners of the cake into 3 folds it made the brown fondant look even more like leather. I was an awesome cake to make. I would recommend it to anyone.
