WHAT. IS. THIS?!!?
Kind of looks like a cinnamon pie dough… right? Well, it’s not! This happens to be a sheet of gum paste that I had rolled out, crinkled, torn, and painted to look old and weathered. Ideally, I would have shaped it into a scroll and let it dry completely before placing it on the cake; but I lacked the time for that. But what was it for you ask?
“Yo ho ho!” A Pirate Map, of course!
“Arrg, Matey” Jake and the Neverland Pirates Map… Complete with Gold Doubloons !
Now try to guess this one… What do you think THIS is? I made it all by myself! lol. I took a cutting board, measured it all out for even spacing, and then drilled holes in it-being careful not to go all the way through. But what did I DO with it, you ask?
Used it for my Pirate Cake Pops, of course!!
Happy 3rd Birthday, Jake! I hope it was an adventure you’ll never forget!
