A complete 180 from my last cake, this one is ALL boy!! My sweet son has a birthday so close to his older sister's that he sometimes gets over looked. Not this year! This was supposed to be just a treasure map cake, but turned into a full on pirate loot cake. EVERYTHING is edible. The coins, the sword, the eye patch, the map, the jewels. It was ever so tasty too! Gluten free so I could eat it of course. Tee hee.
Close up of the skull accents on the sword and coins even.
The map and metal closure piece.
I got pictures of my boys holding the sword before my 3 year old dropped it and shattered it to pieces! It was a sad moment.
Edible eye patch string
Jewels, gold doubloons, pearls. So fun!
The cinnamon and sugar on the frosting was so so yummy! Added a little texture to the cake.
Can I just say I love luster dust!? It's a magical tool for me!
Believe it or not, I used a Celtic knot doorbell button to shape the treasure chest closure piece. Unconventional, but very useful!!
And the back of the treasure chest. I used two bread loaf pans for the chest and just shaped the top one to look curved and I used modeling chocolate for the wood. Happy birthday to my little boy. I love you tons and tons sweet boy!!
