Pirate Treasure Chest Cake

My granddaughter wanted a pirate party and a treasure chest cake for her 5th birthday.

I used plain sponge cakes layered with Jam and trimmed to a chest shape - making sure the lid had a good curve to it. I cut out a small, wedge shaped opening in the front to make it look like the lid wasn't closed, covered the cake with chocolate butter frosting and accentuated the corners and lid with licorice strands.

When the cake was covered I filled the opening with foil covered chocolate coins to look like a filled treasure chest.

Everyone loved it and it was so easy to make.
