Pirate Ship Cake

    Newer Older

    You know how there are just some cakes where everything just goes right? Well this wasn't one of those cakes. I had wanted to make a pirate ship for some time. I spent three days making and remaking different parts. I actually had the whole cake part done and decided to do it again because it wasnt quite right. In the end I was pretty happy with it even though it wasnt perfect. I made the cake for my son's "cake bake auction," a fundraiser for the cub scouts. They left mine until last to auction. By that point half the people had left and everyone's pockets had dried up. So my cake took a whopping....$25!

      Oh what a shame, all that hard work.

      Oh it was fine. None of the cakes go for tons of money, and the kids do most of the bidding anyway. People have figured out that the kids want the cakes with a toy attached to it. So they put a nerf gun or something taped onto the cake board and a kid will bid it up to $50! LOL! The whole thing just makes me kind of laugh!

      It's lovely - are the masts and sails flower paste?

    7. springlakecake 58 months ago | reply

      I wrapped dowels in fondant for the mast and the sails are gumpaste.

      Thank you - I was just sorting out plans to make a pirate ship and was trying to decide if I was brave enough to do gumpaste sails rather than paper - I will go ahead now!

      That was a good idea for making your waves. Did you use a mold for the rope?

    11. springlakecake 54 months ago | reply

      I used the sugarcraft gun that extrudes the gumpaste

      Wow! This is great. Where did you get your pirates, or what brand are they?

      I don't know, I have had them probably 5 years. I think maybe ebay?
