Lanie's birthday cake

better late than never! so this pretty lady had a birthday a couple months ago, and i was so excited about it i made her cake, took it to her house, and ate it... without ever even thinking of taking pictures of it. someone was nice enough to snap a few shots, so here is her pirate themed birthday cake!

pretty standard round 4 tiered red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. covered in fondant and airbrushed blue and black.

the hard thing to see is the skull is actually another cake made for her to save if she wanted to. its the same red velvet with cream cheese frosting, covered with fondant and hand painted to look like a skull and cross bones. (the patch was added later)

all in all it was a 6 layer, 2 tiered scurvy red velvet pirate cake. and if all pirates tasted so good, i might learn how to swab a deck?
