Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: For this pirate cake I baked a peanut butter sheet cake and sculpted and stacked it to resemble a ship. Iced with cream cheese frosting. Fondant was flavored with rum. Made the sails, flag, windows, figurine, cannon balls, and chest out of fondant and gumpaste. Cake was covered in fondant and hand painted. The water is blue piping gel!
