We are a family run business – (Wee Tait Catering), and we were asked to create a Homemade Skull & Crossbones Birthday Cake for a birthday party. We decided to make the design of the skull funny rather than scary.

I found it easier to use an oblong tray and then create a cut out of the skulls face once the sponge had cooled down. Then the rest was pretty simple, rolled out white sugarpaste and covered it all, then cut out the eyes, nose and month.
