NFSC w/Antonia74′s RI. I got a set of pirate cookie cutters on sale at Michael’s and wanted to give them a try. The parrots were inspired by the extremely talented SweetDreamsAT. Thanks for looking!

Cake completed, 14″ cake with 12″ plaque. For the skull formedan oval shape fondant, made depression for the eyes, then addeda little fondant for the nose and around the eyes. Covered the wholdskull with another piece of white fondant and maked markings withveining tool. For the hair used pink fondant in curved sausage form andmade markings. Used artificial jewellery.
This was for a Pirates of the Caribbean themed party. The treasure map has a symbol from each movie. The sides of the cake are made to look like wood or the side of a ship. Then we have the water at the bottom and Davy Jones’ tenticles coming up over the “boat”. Hope you enjoy.
Pirate Topsy Turvy 1st Birthday Cake. The Pirate ship is also carved cake and covered in fondant. The sails are made from gumpaste. Too many fun elements on this cake, I had sooo much fun making it.
Pirate Groom’s Cake. The map edging is an edible image applied to fondant with Crisco. I was able to manipulate the edges after letting the image melt into the fondant after a couple of hours. I painted the edges with melted cocoa butter and petal dust.
Treasure chest is chocolate
For a 7 year old’s birthday. These were taken to school… so each child in class recieved a cupcake!
Jolly Roger with a pacifier, tediously crafted gumpaste pirate ship, graham cracker covered top tier, and fondant waves.

My school kids cookies have turned into pirate kids cookies…LOL!
I think the title says it all.
I make these as favors to go along with the Pirate Ship cake. Cream cheese sugar cookies with RI. Some of the cookies were chocolate chip cut out cookies. YUMMM.
treasure maps are edible ink printed rice paper
Pirate cookie favors to match the child’s pirate/treasure chest cake. Sugar cookies with rolled buttercream and royal accents. Each cookies was bagged in cellophane, tied with curly ribbon and had a tag attached. Inspired by jouj’s awesome pirate cookies!
A pirate theme cake for Mathias, 6 years old. Marble cake with chocolate ganache covered with fondant. All details are fondant. The boat is fondant that I let dry few days so it holds on the cake. The map was drawn with food color pencil. I had palm trees in the back of the cake on little islands of brown sugar to look like sand.
