The client had seen my original treasure chest cake on my website and asked me if I could create the same one for her son’s third birthday. When I discussed the specifics of the cake with her a bit more, I learned that the theme of the party was actually Jake and the Neverland Pirates, not just a general pirate party. Because of this, I wanted to do a more theme specific cake, so I researched what the actual treasure chest from the show looked like. I decided to cover this one in fondant because the client had to pick the cake up a few days before the party and fondant helps lock in the moisture to keep the cake fresher longer.
