The pirate cake served at my grandson's birthday party.
This beautiful work of edible art was created by the wife of one of my son's co-workers. She has her own cake decorating business and does quite well. She has made every cake for my grandson's birthdays and several for other special occasions. I've seen a lot of special-occasion cakes but this woman really is an artist with the frosting, as well as with the added thematic touches of chocolate coins and candy beads. And, from the response of the 15 kids and 20 adults at the party, the cake inside the frosting was pretty tasty as well.
