Pirate Princess Cake for Sweet Sixteen

Cake for sweet sixteen party where the theme was Pirate Princess. Black, white and pink reigned supreme. Cake is whimsical topsy-turvy cake.
Top tier is marbled chocolate and white cake with chocolate buttercream filling and vanilla butter cream under fondant. Middle tier is white cake with vanilla buttercream filling and icing. Bottom tier is chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream filling and icing.

All three tiers are covered in vanilla marshmallow fondant with fondant decor including hand cut skulls and crossbones, flowers, stripes, dots, rope, etc. Borders are fondant as well. Bows on skulls are royal icing as is the anchor. Flowers are wafer paper and fondant/gumpaste. There are some accents with luster dust.

There were also twenty-four marbled cupcakes with buttercream icing and royal icing anchors and bows.

Also provided were giant lollipops decorated to match the theme with party guests names as well. Decorations are in royal icing.

Additional lollipops (orange one for her brother--that's why it's less girly).

Cake would provide servings as follows:
top tier--16 servings
middle tier--20-24 servings
bottom tier--36 servings
cupcakes--24 servings

Cakes are approximately six inches tall but their diameters vary as they are whimsical so they are wider at top of tier than at the bottom of the tier. So the number of servings may vary.
