Find lots of great recipes online for pirate cakes…. here are some to get you started:

And here is our favourite:

Pirate Pal Cake

  • 340g packet butter cake mix
  • 500g packet of white icing
  • pure icing sugar, sifted
  • red food colouring
  • caramel food colouring
  • 1 tablespoon apricot jam, warmed
  • 1 bandana
  • 1 licorice strap
  1. Grease a 20cm deep round cake pan and line with baking paper. Prepare cake as directed on packet. Spread cake batter into prepared pan and bake in 180C preheated oven for 40 minutes or until cooked in centre. Stand cake in pan for 10 minutes then turn onto a wire rack to cool. Trim the rounded top from cake then place upside down on a covered board.
  2. Kneed the white icing on a clean surface lightly dusted with icing sugar, adding a few
    drops of each colouring until icing is smooth and resembles a pale skin colour. Roll icing out on a sheet of baking paper that has been lightly dusted with the sifted icing sugar until approximately 5mm in thickness. Lightly brush the cake with apricot jam. Lift icing onto a rolling pin then gently drape it over cake. Dust hands with icing sugar and rub top and sides of cake until smooth. Trim excess icing with a sharp knife and reserve trimmings. Kneed trimmings together and use small amount to make a nose.
  3. Place bandanna in position at the top of cake. Cut a long, thin strip from licorice strap, place around base of cake and secure with a toothpick. Cut an eye patch, an eye, a mouth, a moustache, a goatee beard, a scar and hair strands from remaining licorice. Brush licorice shapes lightly with a little jam and place onto cake.

Your pirate cake can be completed a day ahead. Place in a large container and store in a cool place (not refrigerator) until required. For best results decorate on day of party.
