Luck Be a... Boy? (Lucky Dice cake)

(I know I'm so behind on posting my week of dogs cakes, but first this:)
Sam designed a Lucky Dice Cake for his Dad's birthday. He was extremely specific in how he wanted the details, especially the "invisible floaty thing".

When asked why Dice, he said, because "I love dice, so if I love dice then, of course, daddy loves dice." (There is a lot of truth in that apple not falling far from the tree.) And "of course" dad did.
Sam also helped with the decorating of the cake. He thought that the dots should not be painted on, they should be cut out of black fondant. Excellent idea.
