Pirate Ship Birthday Cake!

The theme for my son's fifth birthday party is PIRATES! In honor of this them I (with lots of help from my mom!) made a pirate ship birthday cake. I followed the recipe/instructions from Family Fun magazine and I have to say, while mine doesn't look quite as good as theirs, I am very pleased with the results!

Here is the cake right after I made it...







Those are candles coming out of the "cannons" and the cannon balls are Milk duds!


Here is the cake after I put some of Peter's pirate stuff around it. I wish I had thought to put the cake on blue paper so it would look like water.


Peter was pretty happy with it!

Not bad for a theme cake on my very first try!

That cake is the "Bomb". You and your Mom did a great job.

I love this cake.
I'm wondering how many round cakes you used and how you cut them exactly. I looked at the family fun link you originally used and they stated two cakes, but yours looks bigger than that. And for the record, I like yours way more than the one they made. I am hoping to make this for my son's upcoming party. Any tips would be appreciated.
Thanks so much
Julie
