Over the weekend my family and I attended a 'pirate themed' party to celebrate my Aunties 40th birthday. I was asked to make a treasure chest cake and this is what I came up with! The weather was just miserable, drizzling rain on and off the whole weekend, lucky for us the party was indoors and I managed get a few good shots of the cake during a very overcast day.
The latches and hinges are made of icing which I painted using gold lustre dust, moss green and brown to give it that 'old' look. Cake flavour for both tiers was Vanilla Bean, each layer filled with vanilla buttercream.
This is the back view, not very exciting I know! but interesting for those who may be going to make their own treasure chest cake, if you have any questions please ask me :)
