Step 9: Decorating your totally awesome pirate ship cake!!
I gave my cake a wood grain appearance by using a fork.
I made the sails out of regular construction paper. I poked the wooden skewer at both ends of the sail and then pushed it into the cake.
You will learn that you'll have to keep re-frosting due to smudges and also to use as a glue.
I stuck a toy pirate inside the crows nest and used the frosting as a glue. The frosting also helped me glue together my malt ball cannon clusters.
