Well here is a pirate ship I just did. i was going to put rails on it, but I decided I like it just the way it is.  This request was from a lady who didnt want much. She wanted sponge bob, patrick, superman, spider man, blue and green power rangers and a  It took me a few days and told her I would put them all on a pirate ship.  I am not sure if you can see but the pirate is her boy. I took they face and put it on a cartoon pirate I found.   This was made from the 3rd largest oval and then iced with the basketweave tip.  This was a fun cake to do.

Thanks for looking.

This is the pirate ship cake I made for a little boy named Mitchell. It's just white cake with vanilla buttercream and fondant accents. Thanks to all the others who've posted pirate ship cake pictures. I really was able to use the inspiration on this one. I wish I had more time I would of loved to add more details but I only had 3 days notice.

This was the birthday cake for my BIL. He told me once that when he were a little boy he adored pirate ships but never got one. So now he has. It is from Debbie Browns book "Enchanted cakes for children". It was fun to do but I had problems with the modelling paste. I made it by kneading tragacanth into MMF but it wouldn´t get hard. That´s why the railng cracked. However he liked his ship very much.

thanks for everyone's help. i didn't have/couldn't get in time the bigger basketweave tip, so i used #47. wondering what most people charge for something like this- i told her 25, but she gave me 30, which i think is a better price. it was the football pan for the ship, on top of a 1-layer 10 inch. all buttercream, some mmf accents, obviously plastic pirates and the sails were just paper. jolly roger was just clip art i printed

I discovered that this kind of cake works better with yellow or white cake.  I tried to use chocolate but the cake was too moist and broke apart.  My husband (with an engineering degree) tried his best but to no avail. : )  So if you want to make a cake along these lines don't even bother with chocolate.  Thanks for looking.

Ahoy me hearties! yo ho ho, and all that!  This ship was free-hand cut from a basic slab cake - complete with "walk the plank" (on other side of ship) and Lego pirate.

This customer only gave me a couple days notice and I already had 2 other cakes to do.  If I had more time, I would have added more detail to this (cannon & balls, anchor w/ rope, palm tree, etc.).  The customer will be adding pirate toys to the cake before the party, so that will help. 

All yellow cake with buttercream water and choc. buttercream on the ship.  Graham cracker island.  Masts (dowels) and sails (paper) are not edible.

I made one of these before and was hoping to add a lot more detail to this one.  That was before I burnt the heck outta my hand and could barely pipe the icing, let alone add more detail.  

Yellow 11X14 base with yellow loaf pan cut for ship.  All BC & choc. BC.  Crushed graham crackers for sand.  Dowels (masts) & paper (sails) not edible.

Here is a picture of the cake that I did for my nephew's 4th birthday. The water was a 9x13 cherry chip cake frosted with buttercream frosting. The fish were gummies & I used chocolate coins in foil wrap. I pirates I bought at a party store. I also used pirate themed candles. I orange treasure chest was also bought at a party store. The ship was made out of 2 8" cakes cut in half & put together with frosting in between them. The cannons were malted milk balls, the sails were post-it notes w/ wooden skewers.

Here is a picture of the pirate ship that I did for my 4 year old nephew. The ship was made using 2 8" chocolate cakes w/ buttercream frosting in between each. I used my basketweave tip to give the ship a "wood" look. I used Rollos for the cannons, malted milk balls for the cannonballs, & the pirate men came from a party store. The sails were made from post-it notes & wood skewers. I did used the wood skewers to hold the Rollos in the cake & to offer extra support. This cake was a real hit for my nephew!!!

This was for my sons 5th birthday.  The sheet cake is chocolate and the ship is yellow.  It's covered in cbc icing and most of the decorations are mmf.  I made the ship out of a loaf cake that I froze overnight and carved.  The pirates are mmf.  The trees, posts on the ship, and the plank are all tootsie rolls, and the parrot is a starburst.  (Just wanted to see if it would work!)  The sand on the beach is graham cracker crumbs.  He loved the cake!!

This was made for a 4yr. old birthday party.  I used the actual deck, pirates, cannons and sails from a Leggo ship. The deserted Island was made from candy rocks and graham cracker crumbs. The oceans was made from frosting.   The ship was two-3 layered cakes stood up on their sides. There were gummy sharks in the water.  It was hard to get a good picture of the entire cake.   The kids are still talking about this cake two years later!!

This cake went along with the treasure chest due to the large party and pirate theme.  Once again chocolate cake with chocolate fudge frosting.  The islands were yellow cake baked in the sports ball pan.  The sand was crushed up vanilla wafers.  The pirates were my son's toys.

this is my son's pirate cake. it is 3 sheet cakes carved and stacked with choclate icing, and a fondant railing. i'd never used it, so it isn't so great, but it's a start.  the water at the front was regular icing tinted blue, in texas it melted :(  but the kids loved the "chest" i filled it with rolos for treasure, and used pirate figures and a cannon. the candles were out the side as cannons also. they loved this!! it was my first carved cake, but loads of fun!!

This was a very fun cake to do if not frustrating.  It was for my 5 year old godson Zack...and he doesn't like chocolate so the cake is a yellow cake...and I really tried to use straight butter cream tinted brown for the wooden planks...but the look just didn't (okay here is comes) float my boat!  AH  So I mixed in some Fudge icing...and it worked much better...given more time I would have added more detail to the ship...but as it was I was 35 minutes late to the party.
