Pirate Cake and goodies
The client I made this cake and goodies for is a great client of mine. I made her little boys Cars birthday cake and goodies last year too. This year the theme was pirates so I suggested making a treasure chest. I wanted it to look distressed like it was found in the bottom of the ocean and I think I achieved the look well. Everything on this cake is edible. The jewels are made out of sugar turned into a hard candy. I burned myself while pouring it into the gem molds, ouch! The map was made with fondant mixed with Tylose and I used an edible ink pen to write and draw on it. I also made cupcakes with little cannons, seashells, maps, and pirate flags as toppers as well as cute cookies with little girl and boy pirates. When I delivered the cake that the client so it her reaction blew me away. She said, Oh my God, Leelee, no way! You are too much!"I wish I could have taken a picture of her face, lol! Needless to say that I was extremely happy that the cake I made for her exceeded her expectations.
