Pirate Cake, Yar!

This was my first friend-of-a-friend referral, asking for a pirate ship cake made of vanilla pound cake with cream cheese icing.

Also I have to mop the kitchen floor now.

I had to make some extra cake to make sure it would feed 40 people, so I had the bad idea to make the ship separately, while the extra baked and cooled:



The ship didn't survive launch, though:

The back end eventually fell completely off, and had to be rebuilt:

It's just scraps and icing for spackle back there, but it stayed up.




I'm hoping the Birthday Parents (the birthday boy is 3) think the marooned bear is cute, not creepy.

As always, our products are strictly supervised:

  8. Thank you! I was just glad it didn't fall apart on the way to the party. Did you ever post your cake pictures?

    Only a rum cake will do.

  10. Yo ho ho! But the Birthday Pirate was only three, and I'm sure he got wired enough on sugar to cause rum-drinking-like symptoms.
