How to make a duck cake - Quack Quack!!

This was a cake for one of my clients son's first birthdays. It is a vanilla sponge with buttercream and jam cake, I carved it out of 2 layers of 8"sq sponge, each layer cut in two.  3 of the halves were stacked and carved into the body, I then covered this with yellow fondant. I then cup circles out of the remaining layer and carved in to a head shape, covered in fondant and then attached to the body using a cake dowel.

Pirates of the caribbean cake

This is a cake I made this week for one of my customers sons who loves pirates of the Caribbean and chocolate!!

I wanted to design a pirates of the Caribbean cake which wasn't too dark. I also needed it to be two separate cakes as one need to be egg free.

The main cake is chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream, it is then covered in chocolate buttercream, and the edge of the cakes has chocolate cigarillos around it. I made the treasure map on a thin icing sheet and put 'sand' round the edge.

The treasure chest was more tricky as it is a egg free sponge (so more crumbly and harder to carve, learnt my lesson and I wont be carving egg free cake again!)

My client and her son were very pleased with the cake.
