This was a really fun cake to design and create. My son loves the show “Jake and the Neverland Pirates” so I was familiar with the theme when asked to make the cake. I have been seeing this wave technique around for a few months now, and it was the perfect time to try it! The bottom tier was made to look like waves using an ombre wave technique. I bordered the cake with brown sugar to represent sand. And then scattered fondant gold doubloons all around the cake.
I made the Jake character out of fondant. I cut each color out and pieced it together like a puzzle. I made the palm tree out of fondant as well. When I was arranging the top of the cake, it was looking a little bare, so I added an airbrushed sun behind Jake to make him really pop. I love how this cake turned out, Happy Birthday Harry!
