Your flight has been delayed… your flight has been cancelled please collect your baggage. Not the words you want to hear when you have a cake to make! I usually plan ahead sufficiently to ensure that I do not have a very late night before a kids party, I need energy for the party. This time however, due to spending 4 extra hours chasing my 12 month old around the airport terminal, the cake was a last minute job.
My son wanted to see Pirates the Band of Misfits movie with some friends for his birthday so he chose the Pirate Captain for his cake. Making a detailed cake like this takes way too long to video so I have tried to capture the steps with pictures to give you an idea of where to start if you want to make your own 3D fondant cake.
