There is an excellent Instructable on this one, too! User erigeka shows the step-by-step process for building this wonderful cake, sure to excite the little pirate in all our geeklings.
To make this pirate ship cake you’ll need the following
-Toy pirates (I found mine at a local party store)
-Malt balls (these are you cannons)
-Pepperidge Farm Pirouette Chocolate Creme Filled Rolled Wafer Cookies (any brand or flavor is fine)
-ice cream cone
-12×18 1 1/2 inches deep or an 8 inch square baking pan depending on what size cake you want
-colored construction paper to make the sails
-sword shaped cocktail stir sticks (I found these also at my local party store)
This one looks like a winner for my younger boy’s next birthday. Ahoy!
