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!!!
