Hi everyone!
I need to make a 3D pirate ship cake next week and I was wondering if anyone has any tips on how to make it easy? What size pans to use?
Thank you

Hi, I have Debbie Brown's Enchanted Cakes for children, which has how you could make pirate ship. She says to make a 25cm (10 inch) square cake. But then she says to carve the cake to the shape of a ship. If you need more info, please let me know. icon_smile.gif

It depends how big you want the final cake to be. Debbie Brown cakes are extremely small. I would start with two or three quarter sheet cakes stacked and carve from there.

I made one following debbie browns book, but it is small (it was the sunken treasure one). I ended up adding cake to the mid section to make it longer.

Thank You so much for all the help. I ended up doing the ship out of RCT then covered it in fondant and I'm going to make a 1/2 sheet cake and decorate it like water. Thank you though!!
