I am just an amateur at making cakes and this was the most challenging cake that I have ever made, but super fun. I had no idea where to start. I do what ever my nephew conjures up for his parties and I hope that I can keep it up. So when I found out it was going to be a pirate party I searched and searched for the cake pan and ordered it, thinking I can make the wood planks easily.

So the day came to make the cake and I thought, wow, this is going to be interesting so and decided to go and find a template for the wood on the ship. My sister and I went from store to store and finally found one (in Montana we don’t have much to pick from). As we were searching I found some edible glitter which gave me the idea to make some treasure chests. So with tootsie rolls I cut them in half and added glitter. It was the hit of the party.
