Treasure chest cake

Treasure chest cake

This is my first actual paid cake done just a little less than a year ago and it was for a fundraiser for kids with cancer. I practiced the cake twice before getting it right due to internal structure. Everything is edible except telescope and eye patch as I had run out of time to do them in gumpaste. I am very proud of this cake as everything was made by hand, no molds were used, and everything was hand painted. I feel my skills are getting better with each and every cake but for me this will probably always be my favorite cake.

So cute!! How did you get the lid to stay up? I’ve always wanted to do a cake like this!
