Make Pirate Cakes

Easy instructions for making Pirate Cakes:

Bake a sheet cake the size that you need.

Ice the cake in white or ivory buttercream icing using a cake spatula and making sure the surface is smooth. Let it set about 15 minutes.

With the star tip, size #32 and icing make a shell border on the top and bottom edges of the sides of the cake.

I then printed it out, cut it out and laminated it on both sides and then cut it out again leaving a tiny laminated edge all the way around.

Now just lay it on the top of the cake. Use dark brown icing and write your message on the cake top.
