I find birthday cake making quite stressful – I pile pressure on myself (Will it taste good? So as you can imagine, I was pleasantly surprised at just how easy making this chocolate pirate ship cake turned out to be.
Especially since I had to make it in one morning (date night Friday, baby shower Saturday, party Sunday)! I just kept a close eye on the cake in the oven and checked on it frequently until a skewer came out clean.
We used an upturned baking tray as the cake board and covered it in shiny blue wrapping paper to look like water. Step 3: Using the baking paper as a guide, cut off the bits of cake that do not look like the front of a ship.


Step 11: Licorice strips arranged in circles make portholes and the candles are guns or canons. Contact the seller- opens in a new window or tab and request a shipping method to your location. You can bake and decorate this cake in one morning – perfect for a little buccaneer’s party! Cut one of the cakes in half across the centre and sandwich one semi-circle on top of the other with chocolate frosting (if they have risen a lot, you may have to cut a little from the top to make it flatter, allowing the two halves to adhere to each other). Cut the rounded edges off the other cake (but do not discard these), forming a strip of cake that is the same width as your ship base (I used a piece of scrap paper to measure this). Take one of the rounded edges and use chocolate frosting to stick it, flat (cut) edge down, on the front of your ship base. Cover your ship base all over with a second layer of chocolate frosting and smooth with a pallet knife.
Mix the mini marshmallows with the blue food colouring in a bowl until they are take on colour.
I’m making this for my boys 1st birthday I was thinking of putting a layer of rasberry jam as well as the frosting when I piece the two halves together what do you think? There are little kits you can build to make your own but they aren't really a quick craft OR geared toward younger ages. Come see how we made this fun candy creation perfect for a party, decoration or gift for a candy lover!


A kebab skewer with cut out bits of fabric featuring the Jolly Roger, make for a good pirate ship mast.
I knew straight away that the licorice railing would be difficult, because licorice is not fully flexible. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Everyone commented on how fantastic it looked (not nearly as good as yours after it had melted in the car and only had one mast!). The recipe you posted is for a vanilla cake, what did you change to make it a chocolate one?
I used those candy straps… in Australia one strap has 4 different coloured lines and you can tear off each colour seperately. Very helpful btw, yours is the only blog among the many with DIY pirate ship cakes that provides a recipe.
