did this for a grooms cake, 6 9x13 layers filled and stacked. the deck was made on foam core, covered with black fondant. the tower was gumpaste and the airplanes molded chocolate. then there were 95 1" high royal icing piped sailors, hand painted standing all around the deck. had great fun doing this one. i actually made 165 sailors just in case!!!! still have them ready for the next one.
