Homemade Jake and the Neverland Pirates Bucky Ship Cake

Homemade Jake and the Neverland Pirates Bucky Ship Cake

My son has been watching Jake and the Neverland Pirates and begged for a pirate party for his 6th birthday. Once we decided on a pirate ship cake, I knew it had to be just like Bucky.

I made two chocolate mud cakes in 18cmx28cmx7cm tins the night before the party. I cheated a little and used 2x choc mud cake packet mixes for each cake.

In the morning we assembled the cake. We added onto the first cake by using a third of the second cake for the bow (front) and another third for the top deck at the stern (back). The remaining third was just a back-up in case something went wrong!

We actually sliced through the middle of the main cake horizontally and spread a layer of icing to improve the flavor (it was worth it).

To ice, I just used ready-made choc icing. But for the yellow trim and for the canon I used royal icing. I made the canon the night before and let it dry overnight. I rolled it out to shape on baking paper then sliced off the end with a sharp knife. The only tip with the canon is that ours needed a skewer underneath pushed all the way into the cake for extra support as it started to crack.

Lastly, the mast was a 35cm knitting needle, the railings were skewers my man masterfully glued and painted, and there was rigging I knotted together from embroidery thread.

Hope this helps when you make your Jake and the Neverland Pirates Bucky Ship Cake!
