a super splendid pirate ship cake
to make one little boy exceedingly happy on his 13th birthday, I constructed the most marvelous cake of all missions so far: a pirate ship. With full sails and flags to ward off all other pirates that sailed the seven seas, this cake made his day.
I engraved the words 'Les Petits Filoup" meaning "The Little Rascals" on the stern of the ship - it was a perfect name for the ship as the little boy is called Loup.
