A "Pirates of Skeleton Bay" Treasure Chest Cake


I have written before about how I can become quite side tracked about making birthday cakes. I wish I could walk into a supermarket and buy one, but I can't. I look at the price and think - I could do that - and it would be cheaper. Sometimes it is and sometimes it isn't, but at least I can say that I did it.

This year we decided against a big party for middle man and instead had a family trip to the Legoland Hotel. The scary thing is that it was much cheaper than having a party! We had a fantastic time and you can read about it here. As we are regulars at Legoland, and have watched their pirate stunt show a million times, I decided that I would need to make middle man a treasure chest cake with golden lego bricks. I must have had this in the back of my mind as I bought a Christmas Lego bauble with golden bricks in before the park shut for the season!

I then trawled the internet for ideas and pictures of treasure chest cakes before embarking on my own. As I found other peoples blogs really useful in this, I decided I would blog about mine as it may help someone else. So here is my guide for a treasure chest cake.



Then it is just down to singing Happy Birthday and tucking right in. Hope this helps someone, and please leave a comment if you have given it a go.

  2. wow that looks truly amazing!!! I was thinking of having a go at doing a treasure chest for Dan for his birthday last week but i had seen a pigs in mud one on facebook which I thought would be easier as i am really rubbish at making cakes so we did that instead. We are due to stay at the legoland hotel (probably in June for J's birthday) so now i'm really looking forward to that. xxx
