Pirate Ship

Pirate Ship

I created this cake for my son’s pirate themed birthday party.  In this case, I felt that a pirate ship did not need the polished look of fondant, so I used chocolate buttercream frosting to give it the “rougher” look of a real ship.  I also used tempered chocolate for the ship’s rails to ensure everything on the cake (with the exception of the candles and sail) was edible.  I found pirate candles that I used as decorative accessories to complete the look.

Cake Dimensions:  (2) 9 x 13-in rectangle (carved)
Serving Size:  36 sensible servings (finished cake)

Event Location:  McLean, VA
