Coolest Izzy from Jake and the Neverland Pirates Cake

My daughter wanted to have an Izzy cake for her Jake and the Neverland Pirates party so I took a stab at creating my own Izzy from Jake and the Neverland Pirates Cake. My almost 6-year-old daughter helped me make the cake and I made the marshmallow fondant – which is a lot more cost effective, easier to work with, and tastes better than the store bought version.

The recipe is simple:

1. Microwave a 16 oz bag of miniature marshmallows in a bowl in 30-second increments until melted.

2. Add 4 tablespoons of water and 1 teaspoon of clear vanilla or your favorite flavored extract. If you want the fondant colored, add it at this time.

3. Beat in confectionery sugar one cup at a time until you have a stiff, sticky dough.

4. Rub shortening on clean hands and knead the dough on a clean surface dusted with confectionery sugar. Add more confectionery sugar until the dough forms into a ball.

5. Coat ball with shortening, wrap in plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator over night.

6. The next day, coat a clean surface with shortening and roll the dough out. It’s ready to use.

I hope you enjoy the cake and recipe and it sparks your own creativity!

  1. My daughter also love Jake and the Neverland Pirates and would like an Izzy cake. Thank you for sharing your ideas. The cake looks so professional!

  2. This is such a beautiful cake and my niece wants me to replicate it for her 5th birthday that’s coming up next month. I was wondering how you did the pig tails and the ears-was it out of cake or Rice Krispie Treats?

    Thanks!
