Pirate Ship

I made this pirate ship cake for my daughter's fourth birthday. The characters (Backyardigans) are hand molded out of fondant.

how very adorable - it's wonderful! Ooh I wish you had a step by step on how to do it! I can't believe those figures - I thought they were plastic toys! and how did you do those sails? I like yours a lot more than my pirate ship!

alittlesliceofhaven - The water is white fondant slightly unevenly colored blue for a slightly marbled effect. It is then painted with an uneven coat of piping gel to give the effect of ripples in water.

Wow this looks awesome...I thought the Backyardigans were plastic too... however did you get them to look so real? Beautifully done ;-D

TeeBeeWee - Chocolate clay is also what is called candy clay. it is a mixture of melted chocolate and corn syrup. I like the taste of chocolate clay better than fondant. You can find the recipe for candy clay right here at cakecentral under recipes, keywork 'candy clay'

sweetdesignsbyla - After feeding about 40 people there was plently of cake left. I make cakes for my family only. It is a hobby not a business. So I have no idea what I would charge for a cake like this. But i should add that this cake was a lot of work, way beyond what I expected.
