This is my sister-in-law Cheri.
These are the types of cakes Cheri dreams up and creates.
A pirate ship arriving from a water land of cupcakes to a desert land of 'sand' cupcakes on which the pirates will fight with the skeleton crew who have a treasure. Yep. She makes the fabulous creations and then we, her grateful family-in-law, have the audacity to eat them. Truly they should be encased on glass and put on display in a museum. Instead, we eat them. We (un)grateful lot.
The pirate ship is made from rice-crispie treats wrapped in moulded tootsie roll. The masts are cookies.
The water and sand are cupcakes with delicious icing and candies on them. The desert has icing which is them dipped on pulverized graham crackers. So yummy!
In addition to the cake she made cross-bone cookies...because they are so simple to create (?).

|'Come get us and our treasure pirates!'|
|The pirates descend in a ship to advance towards the booty.|
|Prepared to fight!|
|Who will win?!?|
This summer I confessed to Cheri that I have a fantastic business idea. She is going to make cakes like these and I am going to sell them. Thusly she and my brother must stay together always, and she needs to make cakes faster...or we can hire minions to create the cakes while she dreams them up. Either way my plan will take some convincing and she just laughed every time I mentioned our new joint venture. There is some work and convincing yet to be done. Wish us luck with our booty!
