After our Daughters severed arm cake our Neighbor asked if we would make a pirate cake for her son's 4th birthday.
The Skull & Cross bones, rum bottle and sword are all made from marshmallow fondant painted with Wilton's gel food coloring and metallic & pearl food color from Americolor.
The treasure chest is made from a pound cake with the top cut off. I sculpted the wood sides, corner pieces, clasp and coins topper for the inside out of marshmallow fondant and the painted them with Wilton's and Americolor food colorings. The two pieces of pound cake were covered in butter-cream and the covered in the "wood sides" and "coins topper" then I wet the back of the corner pieces and clasp and attached them to the fondant covered "treasure chest." I took some ring pops, broke off the pace and pushed them into the "coin topper". I took a candy necklace and painted it with the metallic food coloring and placed it on top of the "coin topper as well." I then placed the top piece of the pound cake, now the top of the treasure chest, on top.
We frosted a half sheet cake with butter-cream frosting and crumbed vanilla wafers in the blender. We took the cookie crumbs and covered the sides and top of the half sheet cake. We then placed the the treasure chest, skull & Cross bones, rum bottle and sword on the tops of the half sheet. Finally we chilled the cake to set the butter-cream and used Wiltons black decorating icing to write the happy birthday message.
