Pirate Ship Birthday Cake {Captain Jack!}

"Ahoy there me hearties!"
Here is the pirate cake I created last week for a little boys fifth birthday, who just happened to have a great name for this design...Jack.

This was a really simple base design with the addition of a handmade fondant pirate figurine, lootbags, pirate flag, parrot, number 5 'anchor' and Captain Jack on the front to finish it off .

I was really happy with the way the 'water' turned out.  I used a mixture of royal icing and piping gel, I've not used the piping gel for many projects {prior to this one}but it was perfect for covering this cake board.

I really enjoyed making the pirate,  I saw a similar pirate figurine a while back in a UK magazine called 'Party Cakes' {this is a great read with step-by-step projects and some good recipes} I added a moustache which I modelled off my husbands lol :)

and I opted to put him in a pile of icing 'sand' instead of giving him legs as the cake was travelling to Brisbane and I was a bit nervous about breakages.

Inside is chocolate mud cake, Happy Birthday Jack!
If your hosting a pirate themed party I have a great range of pirate themed custom party stationery for boys and girls which includes all of my regular items such as party invitations and thankyou notes, paper banners, cupcake toppers, choc wrappers, treat bags etc. I would love to hear from you.
Have a great day!
