Shiver me timbers! Jared is 4! (almost)

What's a pirate's favorite place to eat?

ARRRRBY's!

What's a pirate's favorite letter?

ARRRRRRR!

What does a pirate want his cake to look like for his 4th birthday party?

A SHIP, of course! (yes, that's Captain Hook on there, but it's the only pirate character I could find that didn't involve me having to buy whole sets of pirate legos or something. He was a whopping $1 at Dollar Tree, so I figured it worked fine and dandy)

Notice the treasure chest candle and gold coins, and the parrot? LOL

Oh, and the malt balls are supposed to be cannon balls. Jared wanted to know how in the world the cannon balls were supposed to get into the cannons when the cannons were really far down the ship and SKINNY. Unappreciative audience, I tell ya!


And because I wasn't positive the ship would work out and be presentable, I also ordered a cake from a local grocery store, requesting it be pirate themed and treasure-map-like. I think it turned out pretty great! (I requested the wording, and added the gold coins and the pirate candles once we got it home)

But let's ooh and ahh over the pirate ship again, shall we?

I am impressed. Who knew that you had so much talent. I guess I shouldn't be to surprised. So which cake did Jared like better? Hmm...at 4 does he have enough common sense to choose correctly? For that matter will he ever? (I often wonder that about some of the men I know, hehe)

Your cake is fabulous!
Home made cakes are always the best.

Great job! You are so talented.
Did you know I have been making a pirate sound lately and Serena at work laughs at me? It is pretty funny. If I am digging through my purse and can't find something I let out my pirate sound...ARRRRRR!
You could have dressed me up and hired me on as a pirate for the party : )

Your cake looks way better than the store cake. I love your creative use of food to make your ship. In a couple of weeks, I'm going to steal your ideas for my pirates family fun night theme.
