Ahoy matey....it's a pirate's treasure

I made this Pirate Cake for my friend Harry's 60th birthday. He is a pirate!

It's made with a 10" round and a 6" round cake. I used the chocolate cake recipe from this site and filled it with the cookies & cream filling recipe I found here too. Everyone loved it.

I only used very simple decorating tricks since I'm just starting out. The sails are made from paper, bamboo skewers and toothpicks for the smaller sails.

The idea is a treasure map, so I frosted the top layer brown for an island and the bottom layer blue for the water around the island. I piped some palm trees and small ships in frosting and added a dashed line like you see on a real treasure map and a compass. I used brown sugar for sand.

It was a fun cake to make and I'm definitely going to keep learning more so I can make even better cakes in the future.
