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.


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" 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's an early night for this pirate momma :)
