Steampunk. Disney Pirates. Halloween. Ya, it's a lot to take in!

My son's 8th birthday cake!  Really random themes all put together.  Halloween.  Disney.  Pirates of the Caribbean.  Steampunk.  I know.  I know.  It's a lot to take in.  So, let's just sit back and enjoy the beauty of this little cake!  Oh, and a big shout out to my friend Brandi Teuscher who took the pictures for me!  You can check out her site to see more of her amazing work.
The Jack Sparrow compass in Steampunk form!
Gears and pirate ship steering wheel.  Classic Jack Sparrow beads.
Gears and metals and even an octopus this time around!  How fun is that?!
"Aye, here there be monsters..."  or something like that.  Pirates, monsters, whatever.
Yep, I did each individual suction cup on those octopus tentacles!  Thanks to my beloved sister who insisted. But, I'm glad she did!
Back of the cake with the tied bandanna and more gears.

The octopus in all it's glory!  You'd never know it was green fondant under all that brass glory!
Edible thread for the compass.  So fun to make!
I even did a tiny little loop for the bead.  That took some doing, but so worth it!

I've always wanted to do a pumpkin cake, and I know it's an odd mix of ideas, but it was so worth it!  My cute son loved his cake and we all enjoyed eating it.  Layers of chocolate and pumpkin spice cake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting.  Oh it was so yummy!  Happy birthday Jarrett boy.  We love you tons!!

  1. Looooove! Those pictures are gorgeous! I'm glad you did the suction cups too. :) And the texture of the pumpkin is super cool and realistic! I think my favorite part is that compass though. It looks like real metal and the thread was a nice touch.
