Pirate Party: Cake success!

We had my son’s 6th birthday party on Saturday with the Pirate theme and it was a big hit! It turned out to be a warm sunny day with lots of family and kids (all 7 and under).

One of the last items I worked on was the Pirate Ship birthday cake that I found here. I could never come up with something like this on my own, but I can follow directions. The only thing that I changed was I enlarged the ship template and made two 13” x 9” cakes, so the ship was almost twice the size of the original recipe. (It also required double the frosting amount.) I didn’t have any blue sugar and forgot to add the breadstick into the bow of the ship. Either way I am thrilled at how cool it came out!!

Here are some pictures as well as the kids gathering around to sing Happy Birthday to my son. It was an awesome day!
