My gorgeous friend Leah was throwing a surprise party for her hubbies big 3-0 and asked for a Pirate themed cake to follow their dinner at a well-known Mexican cafe. So what else could I make but a chili-chocolate, swashbuckling pirate with as much swagger as Mr Depp himself!  Thus, this pirate-treat was born and devoured by the guests as quickly as the tequila!

To make this cake I used a chocolate chili cake recipe from Jaimie Oliver’s website that was just AMAZING and Googled pirate anime photos for inspiration. Thank goodness for Uncle Google!!
