Captain Hook Pirate Party......the Treasure Chest Cake



Today was the big day.

The day "Captain Hook" got his crew together to celebrate his 5th birthday :)


Not Toby's birthday.

Nope.

Captain Hook's birthday.

Of course ;)





I knew it was coming.....the inevitable Pirate party. I tried to avoid it, in favour of some other less popular themes...but nope. It HAD to be a Captain Hook party :)


And to be honest, I had a lot of fun planning it!


There's just too much for one post, so this is just a little preview and a look at the treasure chest cake.


It was actually an easy cake to make. And Toby did a lot of the "decorating"......ie. stuffing as much loot into the "treasure chest" as possible, while nibbling on a little bit or two when I wasn't looking :) 

For a little man who can't have sugar (unless of course it's his birthday), he was absolutely thrilled with this cake!




It was pretty loaded with treasure. Just how he wanted it!



I used three 9"X 13" chocolate cakes, with a little wedge of hard rye bread (yes...really) wrapped in wax paper to prop the lid open. Don't judge. I was too lazy to make more cake ;) And it was much stronger than cake would have been!


The birthday boy post treasure hunt....sans costume......loaded down with every jewel possible :)



As soon as the candles were blown out, the smoke was still in the air and the little pirate hands were pillaging the treasure chest. Wayyy too much to resist ;)



More fun Captain Hook Pirate stuff to come.....when I get motivated to write another post. For now....it's an early night for this pirate momma :)

  2. You are amazing! I had a pirate party for my son when he was younger but my treasure chest cake didn't look that amazing. You are fabulous at parties, ever thought about doing it as a business? Or a book???
