Yo ho, yo ho...

One of my favorite things in life would have to be Vacation Bible School. The awesome kids, the ridiculous costumes, the inventive games, the cheesy songs [there was one this year that came right out of the N'Sync era], the outrageous dance moves...so fun.

In honor of this event I created a cake for the finale. A ship complete with two of the characters, a captain's wheel, sails and an anchor. 

It was covered in chocolate fondant detailed to look like wood. The detail items were made of sugar paste while the mast is bound skewers and paper sails. The waves were royal icing, colored, then manipulated into looking like crashing waves.
Happy sailing!
