Pirate Cake

pirate cakeI made this cake for my granddaughter's 4th birthday. She loved it!
I used 1/2 sheet cake-marble for the ocean and the sand. Iced the ocean blue and the sand brown buttercream and I combined graham cracker crumbs and brown sugar for the sand. I used small pirate figures for the ship and the island. The treasures were made of candy coins, rock candy(diamonds), candy necklaces. I had candy chocolate pebbles and candy bones in the sand. I used a pirate ship cake mold(found online) Chocolate cake iced with chocolate buttercream.I iced it after I placed it on the sheet cake. I used 2 popsicle sticks for the plank. You could used a tongue blade. I found disney pirate characters to put on the ship.

Pirate Birthday Cake

Skull Pirate Cake with Cupcakes

skull pirate cake with cupcakesThe cake: we started with a rich and moist chocolate cake topped with a butter cream frosting, smothered with marshmallow fondant colored black with green fairy dust for effect. The cupcakes had a buttercream frosting - 6 white, 6 black, and 6 cream. We used red, white, and black fondant to create pirate inspired designs.

The frogs were just a side project for my son to do...because they were so cute!

This was the first time we ever used or made fondant. It was quite a fun project that we plan on repeating. The cake, icing, and fondant were all made from scratch. There were moments when I didn't think we'd get black fondant or icing...but we had success! Overall, we were very happy with the outcome. Hope you are too!
