Pirate Themed Birthday Cake

Pirate Themed Birthday Cake on Cake Central

I made this cake for my son's 4th birthday party. He loves The Pirates That Don't Do Anything. I used 3 boxes of cake mix, baked each in 9x13in pan, leveled, iced (layers) and stacked all three and then carved it how I wanted it to look. Also, I used dowel rods for support because I had to transport the cake. And then came the fun part of decorating. I used a fudge stick & fudge stripe cookie for a steering wheel & an ice cream cone for the crow's nest, chocolate wafer for the plank & I put the candles in the cannons on the side of the ship (the black & gold circles). I made the wood effect by putting little dabs of black food coloring on the back of a butter knife & pressing it slightly into the cake. My son LOVED it:)
