I made a Mahjong cake for my father's birthday because he enjoys playing Mahjong whenever we have a family gathering.
The winning combination of Thirteen Wonders(十三么) is shown on a mahjong table with chips and dice.
The base cake is a square cheese poundcake.
The square base is then covered with green and brown fondant to create a mahjong table top.
Made with 2 layers of fondant and cut out using a cookie cutter.
