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.
Here's a great tutorial by karensue: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=556493&highlight=
and here's the ship she writes about: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=774043
good luck. I'm sure you will have great sucess on the cake, this site is awesome for its helpful members
There's also a pirate ship cake pan:
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.
Just wanted to thank everyone for their help! I made the cake....lol it's not great but I am just learning....
