Ahoy There Matey!

Hi everyone!!

It's been a while since I have posted...but here it is.  I know, I know... I'm such a slacker!

Well here is my latest cake fun... all for a good friend...someone who is worth their weight in gold.  Her son had his 21st birthday... so she left me in charge (with creative liberty I might add) of the cake!!  Ohhh myyy.

So this is what I came up with.  She told me he was a tattoo artist and loved pirates.  What better combination than a skeleton pirate ...lookin scarrry and cool at the same time.

Only specific request was ... it had to be strawberry cake.  So it was... with white chocolate truffle filling.  YUM!!

Only thing is... this was cake number "2"  as cake number "1" decided to give me grief and fall apart, due my terrible support system. (the arms didnt have support so they fell off) .. soooo cake number 2 had to be thrown together without any sleep starting Midnight on Saturday night.... and delivered to the birthday BBQ (catered by the Mustang....YUMMMM) by 1pm Sunday.

But God works in mysterious ways... Cake number 2 looked a heck of a  lot better than #1... so all worked out for the better.
...only drawback is that when I took this picture, I forgot to add the other treasure chest full of jewels spilling out....and more of the edible gold coins.... *sigh*  lack of sleep... brain fried... all a terrible combination.

Blessings for looking!
Below are pix of the disaster  ... my sweet love is trying to help me "Rigg" it so it will stop splitting down  the middle... to no avail.  I had to scrap it and start baking and re-doing EVERYTHING at midnight *sigh*
