Pirate Party

I had the most fun making a pirate-themed cake and accompanying cupcakes for Jack's birthday party last month.  Jack's mom, Melissa had such confidence in my creative abilites that she gave me full reign of the creative process...I love when that happens!  She knew she wanted a pirate theme and a combination of cake and cupcakes.  The rest was up to me.  I couldn't wait to get started, so immediately started sketching.

Here is what I came up with for the cake and cupcake toppers:

Finished fondant decorations ready to go on the cake:

Finished fondant cupcake toppers:

Cake - vanilla cake with lemon curd filling and blue raspberry buttercream:

Pirate cupcakes - vanilla/vanilla, parrot - vanilla/chocolate, skull and crossbones - chocolate/chocolate, treasure chest - chocolate/peanut butter:

Detail of treasure chest.  I'm so proud of how they came out!

I loved this project so much and look forward to doing more like it!
