3d Pirate Map Cake

Introduction: 3d Pirate Map Cake

Step 1: Cinnamon Chocolate Cake

This is an old family recipe that puts a twist on chocolate cake

Cream 2 cups sugar and 1/2 cup butter
Mix in to the sugar mixture 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of milk, 1tsp real vanilla extract, 3tbsp cocoa powder, and 1tsp baking soda
Next mix in 2 cups flour and 1 cup boiling water half at a time.
Now add 2tsp of cinnamon and bake at 350 for about 30 min
This recipe will fill two 9 inch circle pans

Step 2: Home Made Fondant

I like this recipe because it's really easy

Put a 16oz bag of mini marshmallows and 1tbsp of water into a large micro wave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time stirring in between until marshmallows are completely melted.
Next sift in about a pound of powdered sugar little bits at a time stirring as you go until the mixture is about kneadable. Knead in a little bit more powdered sugar and untill it's pretty much the consistency of dough. Next coat your hands with a good bit of Crisco and continue to knead.
If you want it colored mix in Wilton's gel food coloring while doing the second step.

    Wow, that is a really impressive cake! I'd love to see some more pictures of how you did the decorations. Did you use a template for the map?
