The pirates treasure map cake


At the boarding ... heading for the treasure of the pirates! To impress your young gourmands at a pirate birthday party, make them a treasure map cake. A recipe proposed by Aurélie and Anne-Sophie, best pastry chef M6.

Ingredients:

Chocolate icing

  • 200 g of chocolate
  • 200 g icing sugar
  • 150 g of soft butter

Decoration

  • 100 g blue sugar paste
  • 2 crocodile candies
  • 1 chocolate tray
  • 1 flat candy wire
  • 1 roll of liquorice
  • 1 sweet strawberry lasso
  • 6 shortbread
  • Chocolate pieces

Cake

  • 4 Breton or four quarter cakes
  • Choco-hazelnut spread

Production :

Chocolate icing

  • Break the chocolate into pieces and melt it gently in a bain-marie.
  • Using a food processor or a bowl with a mixer, whip the butter and icing sugar until the mixture is creamy (at least 5 minutes).
  • Add the melted chocolate and beat again for 5 minutes.

The decoration

  • Cut the cakes to get a flat rectangle. Weld them with chocolate spread or chocolate icing.
  • Spread the blue sugar dough to cover a little more than half of the rectangle.
  • Cover the sides of the chocolate frosting rectangle.
  • Draw a glazed beach on half of the cake surface to form a kind of treasure map and sprinkle it with biscuit crumbs to form the sand.
  • Finish the treasure map decor (itinerary, boat, chocolate coins, crocodiles ...) with biscuits and sweets.
