This cake was made for my dear friend Vanessa's husband Eric. He is such a cool dude, and has the two cutest little dudes. All together her house if full of pirate boys, and she needed a cake to celebrate Eric's birthday. This dark chocolate cake is iced and filled with a very rich and creamy butter cream icing and I cut the scull and cross bones out of fondant and then painted it with a white luster dust, so that it has just enough sparkle for Vanessa to enjoy, but not too much shimmer for all of her boys!
Happy Birthday Eric!
