I made this my friend's birthday...he is a pirate captain of his very own ship shaped bar that he built with some of my other friends. I helped decorate it :) They bring it out for different parties and such and it's a lot of fun, especially since it's fully functional as a bar. Anyhow, you must have a pirate themed cake for a pirate ship party and that's exactly what I did. It's a chocolate cake with a layer of ganache and a layer berry buttercream for filling and a vanilla buttercream frosting. The ships are mini cakes and the pirates are Teddy Grahams.
