Pirate Map Cake

This pirate map themed cake was made for one of my favourite little people, Liam on his 9th Birthday. 

The map is hand painted and the edges where crumpled up and dusted to give the impression of age, I added red & white stripes around the sides of the cake because Liam just loves bright colours.

To give the map some extra depth I added some very tiny features from an Indian teepee village to a pirate ship.

The client want two cake flavours, so half was a chocolate sponge with chocolate buttercream and the other was a Victoria sponge with Raspberry flavoured Itailan meringue buttercream.

This is a very large cake 14/10 inches, but it can be made in smaller sizes
