Enoch's Jake and the Neverland Pirates Cake

Last year, I made Enoch a Jake and the Neverland Pirates Cake(s) for his 4th birthday. The larger boat is a ship named "Buckey" from the show. The smaller cake was a gluten free cake representing the "Jolly Rodger", which is Captian Hook's ship. I used tissue to represent water...and it came out delicious and really cool to look at. My 4 year old was thrilled! I made 2 cakes and then cut out pieces, shaping them with a seraded knife until I got the right look.

The cake and frosting was made with the Hershey's Recipe. It had an amazing light & fluffy vanilla filling frosting too. (It wasn't overly sweet and was a great contrast to the deep chocolate cake and frosting. The gluten free cake was made from a mix, but the same frosting was used.

This year...I need to do a cake, but am not sure what direction to go. Enoch's said he'd like a train cake (I've done that before), Jake cake (done), and a few other ideas. Currenlty, I'm thinking of a map with mountains that represent different places in the house to go find presents. Hummm...???? Wish me luck!
