Pirate Cake Three Round Cake Halves Are Used to Form the Ship

What a really cool Pirate Cake! This ship looks ready to sail the seven seas with a captain at the helm, full sails. cannons and gold treasure in the stern of the ship. Better behave or you might be asked to walk the plank!

This cake idea came from the book "Family Fun Birthday Cakes: 50 Cute and Easy Party Treats." This is a fabulous book! I made a train cake from this book which was fun, relatively easy, and a big hit!

This cake is made using two round cakes sliced in half and then put together standing (with a bit taken off the rounded end to help it stand). The difficulty with this cake was getting it to stay together because it required lots of icing, but then it got so heavy that one layer actually fell off. I recommend keeping it refrigerated to help keep the icing from slipping.

The cannons are pirouline biscuits. The sand is graham cracker crumbs. The mast was made using wooden skewers and then paper was cut out in the desired shape. A pretzel for the for the helm and a wafer for the plank. The pirate figures and accessories were purchased at the dollar store and really made it seem more real. The blue water is icing colored with blue food coloring.

A Pirate Ship Cake sailing the seas with sculpted masts, ship and wonderful textured details.

This cake was sculpted using fondant pieces cut into strips. The fondant pieces are then given texture using a textured silicon wooden impression mat. Figures and other details are shaped fondant.

********************************************Thank you for sharing such a wonderful pirate ship cake! The details are meticulous and I love the way you used the textured mat to create the ship's detailed wood.

Pirate Cake 3

by Zoe

This cake was made for a little boy who loves pirates and his mom wanted a really special cake with a pirate that looks like the birthday boy!

For this pirate cake, it was very important that the Pirate not be too scary!

Using the birthday invitations, the graphic themes and colors from the invitation were incorporated into the design of the cake. The head of the boy pirate on the cake was made to look like the birthday boy Oliver and was the focal point of the cake.

Cutting thin strips of rolled fondant and lining them on the sides to make stripes is an easy and effective way to reinforce the Pirate theme! The idea is simple and fun! The result is playful and delicious! ARRRGGGGGG!





Thank you for sharing such a wonderful cake. I love the idea that the pirate looks like the birthday boy. The colors are bright, cheery with a friendly pirate!!

Pirate Chest Cake

by Daria

This Pirate Treasure Chest Cake is such a stunning cake with its realistic details! The carved wood effect and gold trim is beautiful. The coins and sand are artfully arranged.

The sand is brown sugar with gold powder. This also can be done with either white or brown sugar and brown colored powder. Add white sugar to a ziplock, add brown colored powder, shake and then add some gold powder.

The wood relief is done by hand using the back of a knife. It is then painted to give the trompe l'oeil effect. This art technique gives it the extremely realistic look with three dimensions.

These cute Pirate Skull Cake pops were made for a lucky nephew. Using a cake pop recipe from Bakerella, the pops were hand shaped into skulls. The faces were drawn on with edible marker and the cute red bandannas are made from fruit roll-ups. Each roll-up was cut into four squares.


*********************************************




What a creative idea! I love the use of the fruit Roll Ups to make the bandannas. We were given permission to use this cool Pirate Cake Pop Idea and photo. Here is our Cake Pop Recipe that could be used to make these pops.
