My husband wants to do a viking motif for my son's second birthday. He found this website that has a viking cake he wants to try and replicate. I'm new to doing cakes but I was trying to figure out if this was half circles layered vertically or was it standard horizental layers that were carved?

Any suggestions on how to do this?

It looks like a cake cut in half and then a little shaved off the bottom for stability with lots of ganache holding the 2 halves together. I see Pocky candy being used for the oars and maybe Rollos and candy melts being used for the shields/portholes. HTH!

Edited to add: I bet you could really make an awesome viking helmet cake by either carving or maybe even using the Wilton wonder mold pan.

Here are pictures of the practice cake I made today. The first is all the cake trimmings I cut away from four round cakes to make the ship. The second is the final result. I will do a proper sail for his birthday. Still trying to decide how I want to decorate the top. The last is Sebastian admiring the results.
