Hello,
It is my brothers birthday in the 2nd of January. I wanted to make him a cake similar to the one in this link:

Can someone PLEASEEEEEE help me on how I can make the ship? I have never carved a cake before. Also I wanted place the ship cake onto a sheet cake, will I need to use a dowl to stop it from sinking into the sheet cake?

I would be grateful for any help as I have no idea how to go about making this cake.

Aish

When I did my pirate ship cake I used an iron and traced the bottom of the iron on a piece of cardboard and then carved the cake from that. Hope this helps. There is a pic of my ship in my gallery.
