my brother had a cookie cake for his grooms cake. why don’t you check out etsy, that way you won’t have to worry about making something. or do you have a chocolate shop near you? you could see if they can make chocolate coins to put on top.

I would get some chocolate coins and decorate the cake with those and some other type of something:

You could do this piggy bank heist and stack up coins behind the piggy getting robbed:

Or if you did a cookie cake you could do a ring of coins on the outside and maybe a bride coin and groom coin.  (the bride coin would have a tiny veil on it and the goom coin could have a tiny bowtie and you could pipe frosting to stand them in to they are up straight, if that makes since)

you could make the top resemble a coin….you could prob enlist the help of costco, or walmart something like that to get a coin pattern printed on it…..

I agree with stlginkgo. It should be simple enough to make the cake look like a coin. Even cooler, if you have any photoshop skils, have his profile photoshopped into a coin-like design and then print it on the cake.

Decorating the top of a cake to look like a coin takes quite a bit of skill.

You might be able to order a cake pain that imprints the shape of a coin on the cake.

 Here is a link ot a poker cake that you might consider. It shows how to use the foil covered chocolate coins to decorate the top.

Leave off the card suit decorations on the sides.

@ FutureMrs.Harless, Yeah I thought about that too, but the piggy banks made me think of coin collectors.  You could always make tshirts for them that said coin collectors.  It would be kinda like the coin collectors are stealing their coins:)

I had another thought. Coin shaped cake pans seem hard to find- but chocloate molds aren’t.

Make the cake in an ordinary round pan. Ice with choclaote icing and smooth it flat.

Here is a link to a chocolate mold that is 3 inches across. You could make the chocolate coin and center it on top of the cake then surround it with the smaller chocolate coins(I would peel off the gold foil so it is all edible) which are easy to find.

I’m sure there are lots of other coin chocolate molds but I thought the “lucky penny” might be appropriate.

what if you did cupcakes? you can do the yellow cake with chocolate icing and put some sprinkles and a chocolate coin on top of each one.
