Cool Homemade Skull and Cross Bones Cake

I had a good time making this skull and crossbones cake. I used one round pan and one square pan for the design. Then just buy looking at a photo of a skull and crossbones I used a toothpick and drew on the designs I needed to outline with the different icing. I personally think it turned out pretty good.

I am still learning. I really enjoy designing the cakes myself, without a cake pan. That makes it a bit more challenging. I could have easily purchased a pan, but I don’t want a million pans in my cabinets.

I made this cake for my 17 years old’s birthday. I hope he likes it.
