Just this last Thursday, I helped my cousin to make a pirate cake. We used colored fondant kits to help make the pirates for the cake. Here is some pictures of the fun adventure of making a pirate cake.
My cousin forming the fondant to make heads and arms. The fondant
was put in sealed bags so that they would not dry out so quickly.
I made up a light sugar water base to dab on the cake to keep the cake from
cracking. The sugar base was made of simply water and sugar.
Here is the bottom part of the cake after the top part was cut off with a Wilton Cake Leveler. The sugar water base was applied to the cake to keep it from cracking.
Cindy, my cousin, is pictured here making the fondant legs for the pirates.
With some extra help, the pirate characters got more detailed with practice. Melissa was the one who we can give the most credit to for making the most detailed and cutest fondant pirate characters. Check out the excellent pirate below.
The finished fondant pirate character.
The finished cake. There is chocolate licorice around the sides to represent a boat. Candy rocks, gummy fish, and blue icing were put around the bottom part of the cake to represent the boat near water. A cannon was made out of fondant to put on top of the cake. Malt balls were put near the cannon to represent cannon balls. Barrell shaped rootbeer candies were placed throughout the cake to look like barrells.
