Wakefield/Varitek Poker Tournament

On May 31st, for the second year, Tim Wakefield & Jason Varitek hosted a Poker Tournament Benefit, as a pre-party to their 2010 Celebrity Golf Classic, sponsored by The Captial Grille & Pitching in for Kids on June 14th.

At the tournament, card sharks had a chance to play Texas Hold 'Em with Wakefield and Varitek, along with other local celebrities, to raise money for Pitching in for Kids. Here at Dessert Works, we had the opportunity to create and donate a custom cake for this great event!

Our hand-sculpted "Tim Wakefield" made out of chocolate.

Now they're adding Varitek.

Look how tiny the cards and poker chips are that were made and added by hand!

The final result!

The stools, rug, cards, chips, and beer bottles were all handmade out of chocolate!
