For some reason I absolutely love this cake… It was very fast and easy to decorate, I actually copied someone else’s design, because I thought it looked adorable… Made for a little 7-year old pirate – there is a an inquisitive picture of him poking away at the eye patch at the party - boys! :-)
8” round, 3” thick cake, baked in a Pirex container (honestly I just wanted to experiment the difference in baking between the glass and my regular cake tins). Chocolate cake, with chocolate pastry crème filling and Ghirardelli chocolate buttercream frosting, all covered in fondant.
I’d make it again in a heartbeat!
