I'm looking for cake decorating ideas for a cake with a sailor or nautical theme. Any ideas? Thanks.

Oooooh! I want to do one of these, but I need a reason. I'm picturing a navy blue and white striped square with a fondant rope around the middle of the sides of the cake. Fondant lifesaver things attached to that (with the red stripes, of course) and some kind of gold accents. I don't have any great ideas for the center of the cake, though. That sounds like fun!

There are some great boat/yacht lighthouses here in the gallery. I hope to do one next year.

My BF and I both sail and last year for his Birthday I made a Sailboat cake.
One Sheet Cake and I carved out the sides to make the shape of the boat.
With the left over pieces I made the cabin. I covered it in white icing and stuck a skuir in the middle for a mast and cut out a piece of paper for the front sail (Jib) and the Back Sail. (Main.)
Around the base I added blue frosting which I tipped with a little white so that it looked like the boat was moving through the water.
It was decent enogh for my first try that I did another one for a sailboat party a week later.; The people RAVED about it...
Now that I have experiance I am thinking that I will try another one this year but cover it in Fondont instead of just the butter cream. AND put little Gum Paste people in it too like they are sailing. icon_biggrin.gif
