I think this is it, I can officially say this is my favorite cake Liz has done (thus far). You may or may not know I love pirates. I really don’t know what it is. I couldn’t have been a pirate, they were despicable human beings, were constantly in mortal danger and showered maybe once every other month, but something about pirates just intrigues me and I can’t get enough. This cake is THE ultimate pirate ship cake of all pirate ship cakes and it calls my name. If the outstanding detail and overall aesthetic incredibleness doesn’t get you then how about cannons that actually fire?! Yeah you heard me, cannons that actually FIRE.
Don’t forget the sweet little working lights at the back of the ship too, because working cannons weren’t enough special effects for this cake, no sir.
Every good pirate story has a kraken, (again with the mortal danger), and the buttercream waves are so artistic, they really add a lot to the overall look!
A birds eye view of all the fantastical detail, a bit of an overload I know. It is easy to forget this is a completely edible cake, even for a cake decorator.
And of course the sails, the sails are magnificent! You definitely don’t want to miss the structure and techniques Liz used to create the sails.
And there it goes, sailing away in the distance, about to be viciously destroyed by a kraken, no quarter (that’s mercy in pirate talk). Isn’t it great?! This cake truly has a vast amount of techniques that really can be used in so many ways for so many things.
I am certain you want to see the cannon firing action for yourself so be sure to check out the promo video below! Until next time scurvy scalliwags.January 3, 2017
