This is actually the cake that got me into making cakes... My son wanted the HEB pirate ship for his birthday, but I couldn't afford it so I decided to make my own. This was a year ago, before I knew anything about making cakes. This was made with a box cake and store bought frosting. (The horror! LOL) It was another 6 months before I really got into cakes, but this was so much fun that it put the idea in my head.
