Boat Cake

My daddy turns 74 last month. I wanted to give him a surprise birthday day, not just a plain ordinary cake, I wanted to make one cute and wonderful cake for him.

Then, I got this idea for a boat cake: a wide cake with sailboat on it. My daddy used to be a sailor, so he likes everything with boat shape- and I would like to add two sugar figurine / doll that represent my daddy and my little boy-those two are like soul mates.

I never made a sugar doll before, but I was determined to make one. So, by looking at figurine on the internet, I made the figurine, not bad at all, oh and as a special request from my little boy, the figurine are holding hands!

The figurine is made of fondant, the cake is a plain chocolate covered with buttercream. The sailboat is made of styrofoam. To make it look nicer, I added a bridge with a small lake underneath, completed with ducks ( my favorite )

Dad is so stunned when he looked at his birthday cake, it really surprised him and he is so delighted!

I made this ski boat cake out of a half sheet cake, cut it in half, glued it together with butter cream frosting and then shaped it. I used fondant pieces to make the boat details. The figurines were made out of dolls and arms reglued into the position they needed to be. Strings were attached to the skiers and then tied together and placed them in a plastic cut dowel which goes right in the cake. These 15 skiers were attached to a paint stick with a rod supporting it in the back.

I screwed the pyramid into a covered board which was iced with frosting. This cake was for a Webfooters ski team members birthday party. Birthday boy did no let anyone eat the cake on his birthday because he wanted to bring it to school and show it too his classmates! That made me so happy to see how excited he was!

This was a team effort for bringing this cake together. I had help with the pyramid part of the cake. Mom and Dad had a hand in that aspect and did a great job! Thank you for posting their son's birthday cake!

A lot of work

I made this Homemade Sailing Ship Birthday Cake for my grandson Miller, for his 9th birthday. The cake was made in a loaf tin, split and filled with jam and white chocolate buttercream, and crumb coated in vanilla buttercream, then fondant iced.

I modeled the boy and birds in sugarpaste, also the sail. The mast is made from gumpaste, rolled to a sugarstick (several snapped before I succeeded). The sea is royal icing swirled with a fork in blue, green and white. I am pleased that it was a "hit" with the birthday boy and his friends, although I worried unnecessarily that the mast may snap in transit to the party venue!

Coolest Boat Cake 11

I baked a circle cake, cut in half then stood them on their sides and put some rods in the center to hold them together. Worked pretty well, I was just making it up as I went along.

The sail of the boat cake was just paper and the boat was chocolate cake with orange fondant covering it. The black lad doggies were fondant too, I just shaped them into what looked like dogs.

This was for a birthday party on a boat and it held up to the waves all day until we ate it!
