It is my son's 5th Birthday today [HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEN] and so we had a pirate party for him. He wanted the party at home this year, so I can't review Fidgets or Go-Go Bambini here, but I can tell you about the cake.
I ordered it from Smiling Orchid Bakery and it was a hit all round. If you know what OTT stands for, then that's what this cake was. Totally Over The Top! When I first saw it I couldn't work out where the actual cake was, but there is 2kg of cake somewhere under pirates, pirate ships, cannons, and palm trees. These decorations are all plastic and can be kept as toys, while other decorations such as pebbles on the beach and the grass are edible.
Anyway, Smiling Orchid have an on-line catalogue where you can view all their amazing designs. Some are 3-D and have to be ordered a few days in advance, but most, like this Pirate Cove one, can be ordered the day before. For S$128 (including GST) with fresh cream or a little less with buttercream, I thought it was well worth the expense.
The actual cake is a light sponge with a choice of blueberry, chocolate chip or strawberry filling. We picked the strawberry filling and it was quite tasty without being too sweet. I would highly recommend this cake if you are looking for the WOW factor and also want a cake that tastes good.
