Pirate ship cake

Ben ‘s 4th Birthday Cake

This was my first commisoned cake! I was very excited!

This is 5 layers of white cake with chocolate buttercream icing.
The ‘water’ is blue vanilla buttercream on white cake and is one 18”x14”x3” sheet cake.
The cannon and anchor and flag are made of chocolate fondant and ‘painted’ with edible gold or silver pearl shimmer.
The treasure chest was also chocolate fondant and each doubloon coin was handmade and painted with edible gold pearl shimmer
Everything is edible but the masts and anchor rope.
This cake weighed in at 21 pounds of cake and icing.

The rum bottle is for size comparison. (for you Lisa!)

I have to give thanks to my husband, who helped make the template for the shape, and cut the cakes. He also stayed home with me when we had to cancel our plans and re-bake 3 sheet cakes after the ship broke down the middle! Thanks Honey!
