Chocolate fudge cake with buttercream icing. Buttercream covered straws for 'sails'. After following some pretty weak instructions on making a pirate ship, i found my cake completely falling apart in the fridge...slowly cracking apart. After a five minute stress break, I realized that i could make a squid attacking the ship. Everyone thought i meant for the ship to be broken apart like that. It worked out great in the end and my 5 year old son just loved it!
