Pirate Ship Cake

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!
