Here is a close up of the super easy-peasy pirate cupcakes I made~ I added blue food coloring to a container of ready made frosting. Once the cupcakes were frosted, I added a chocolate doughnut "ship" with a Teddy Gram "Captain" standing under a ships sail with a pirate flag of course. Aaaaaarrrrrrrrrrdorable! With the added pirate ship and flag, they didn't quite fit under the tiered cupcake stand as I had planned...so when I make these again, I think I'll cut the doughnuts in half so they are not so tall. That way I can make a bazillion of them and have the tiered cupcake stand stuffed to the gills with sweet-gooey yumminess.
I also made a bunch of "save the date" little pirate ships to be passed out since his birthday party won't be held until next month on the 9th. I found the printable pirate ship while perusing the internet for pirate stuff. I modified it by using a Dum-Dum sucker as the ships mast instead of a straw, and of course, I added the save the date information.
