We pillage, we plunder, we rifle, and loot

       Drink up me hearties, yo ho.

I can’t help but sing that song every time I think about this cake. So, in other words it’s about time that I stop thinking about this cake. Yo ho!

When my friend for asked me for this cake, I said.. how about just a normal cake with a ship on top? To which she said.. no…a pirate ship cake. And she sent me directions on how to do it. Ha!

Shaped cakes are always so intimidating…until they’re not.

Here’s some behind the scenes. Please excuse any phallic references you may see throughout the process. Ha, it just kills me.
