I made this cake for Bobby and he wanted a red hull. I think it turned out very cute! You could eat everything except for the pirates and pole for the mast. I used the Nordic Ware Pirate cake pan for the ship and added another layer to the bottom of the ship using a 9x13 pan. The bottom cake was 14" square. Sharks, masts, coins, cannon balls, cannons are made of fondant. Railing is chocolate licorice.
