With Abi Mancktelow

Difficulty Easy

Broken Video?

Have fun and join Abi in this quick and easy tutorial on how to create this pirate themed decorated cake with a twist. You will learn how to achieve the perfect drip icing effect on the top and sides of the cake using our very own Sattina 'So Simple Drip Icing', great tips on how to get the best consistency, smooth and blend joins and how to finish those tricky piped edges. You will also be shown how to stylise the top of the cake by adding some piped coloured buttercream waves, scatter some sprinkles, add the funky pirate themed cake toppers and a Happy Birthday topper to mark the occasion. If you loved this idea, then check out our other videos below.
