Ships Ahoy

For my adorable nephew's first birthday, I did 40 chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with pirate-themed toppers. I lined the cupcake tower with woodgrained paper to resemble ship planks. The top cake was chocolate with my favorite Swiss meringue buttercream -- not too sweet and so silky.

Here are the toppers in progress. They included a pirate boy, treasure map, skull and crossbones and a pirate ship.

My brother-in-law painted the pirate mural on the wall!
