Fondant Pirate Cake with Skull Cake Topper

 We had Jaxson's Pirate Party last Sunday and this was the Pirate Cake that I made for his special day.

This Pirate Cake is a three tier stacked cake . I topped the top of the cake with an edible skull that I made a few days prior.

 I made the skull cake topper out of white chocolate. I used a toothpick to give him some cracks and painted them in with brown and black food coloring. I just painted over the crack then wiped off. I think he came out perfect.

 The top tier of the cake was covered in red fondant and had a handcrafted fondant pirate scroll with Jaxson's name on it.

The middle tier is my favorite. I had drew the map using an edible cake marker. I used pirate stamps (as seen in this post here) as my inspiration and guide for the boats, skull, and octopus.

I love the Ahoy Matey Happy Birthday sign that I made out of fondant to imitate wood.
 

The sword going through the cake is gum paste over wire. The left side of the sword kept falling backward so it looks a tad bit off in this picture. I hope you enjoyed this post!



Here is the cake sketch I drew vs. the cake I made.
 

Pretty close, with some minor color changes :)
 
Do you have a birthday party coming up? Do you decorate your own cakes or have a baker do it?
