Pirate Ship Cake

Anyone else have the Pirates of the Caribbean song going through their head right now?  No?  Just me?  Alright then...

A couple weeks ago, my older son turned five, FIVE!  It’s so hard to believe I already have a five year old.  It seems like just yesterday, I was bringing a little 4 pound bundle home from the hospital!  Well, my little bundle of joy has grown up into such a funny, intelligent little boy!

And what my little boy really wanted for his birthday was a Minnie Mouse cake.  Yep Minnie.  Mickey was not acceptable.  You see, when I made the Minnie cake for my friend, he immediately thought it was for him and decided right then and there (in October) that he was going to make a Minnie themed party for his birthday in January.

Now, I’m a pretty tolerant parent (my younger son has a collection of baby dolls & both boys like to play with my hairclips), but I wasn’t making my son a Minnie cake.  I gave him a few more ideas…Mickey, robots, pirates, trucks?   Well, eventually he settled on pirates (he’s a big Jake & the Neverland Pirates fan, too) but only if he could have a pirate ship cake.

To make his pirate ship cake, I used the same baking and carving method as I did with the Xylosaurus Cake, only carving the cake into a ship instead of a dinosaur.  I used Rich Chocolate cake, Chocolate MM Fondant, and just a little bit of MM fondant for the details!  

In the end, my son was so thrilled to have a pirate party, complete with eye patches, that he didn’t remember the Minnie Cake at all!


  1. Amazing!! Looks fantastic! :)

  3. Your cakes are amazing! Love your talent. Thanks for sharing at Must Try Monday.

  4. This is AWESOME! Now I wish we were having a pirate party in a couple of weeks, but ours is to be a Superhero one. I'm not sure about the cake. Most I have seen are tiered and we just don't need THAT much cake! I'm going to have to check out your fondant recipe.

  5. You made that cake....???? I am in awe.....
    Are you sure you didn't steal it out of a window display or something...? Lol
    It belongs in a magazine!
