ECU Pirate Groom’s Cake
My friend’s Grant & Mallory were married this past Saturday! 🙂 Mallory asked if I could make a Groom’s cake for Grant as a surprise. He attended ECU (East Carolina University) and wanted a purple and gold wedding. She wasn’t so keen on the idea for the Purple & Gold theme, so she wanted to surprise him with a cake. So this is what I came up with 🙂 It was a Chocolate Fudge Cake (I hate I don’t have a picture of the inside), with White Chocolate Icing. I pretty much stick to the Wilton White Chocolate Buttercream and people really seem to enjoy it. My biggest hurdle with this cake was not finding a box large enough to transport it in. It was an 11×15 in cake, 2 full layers. So a 4″ high box was not quite big enough and the top got a little bit smashed. I did find some boxes that were 5″ high online, but I had to order 50 of them! I didn’t feel like doing that this time around but I might have to if I end up making this size cake again. It was yummy! 🙂
Here’s a cake I made a few week’s earlier for my husband’s birthday. He’s not necessarily a Pirate fan, but I told him he was getting Pirate cake because I need to practice!!
