Pirate's Paradise

Pirate's Paradise on Cake Central

This is my take on Ishi's pirate ship cake. My first cake totally covered in fondant. Thanks for the inspiration. I used an 11x15 using the cut triangles for the front and purposely made sure I had a strip for the back. The treasure chest was cut from an extra 4 inch round I had from another project. The Island is molded from Rice Krispie treats. I used a leaf veining tool to etch the woodgrain in the fondant strips on the ship and an impression mat for the treasure chest. wafer paper for the sails and Brownulated sugar for the sand. Took me forever but this cake was super fun to do. When my coworker and her husband picked it up they said they didn't really want to cut it.

It's terrific, and I love that you have the ship and sand too. Thanks for including the sizes, it's hard to tell from the pic just how big it is. Your woodgrain is great!
