a pirate looks at forty (seven)

I've been wanting to make a pirate ship cake for a while now and with my father being the parrot-head that he is I thought there would be no better occasion than his birthday. I played off of Buffet's song "A Pirate looks at Forty" as my theme and came up with a pretty fun cake.  It was a cake of firsts for me--this was my first shaped and chocolate cake that I've made.  It was a lot of fun to make and didn't take nearly the time I thought it would.  To personalize it a bit I added Dad's favorite candies: Runts and Twizzlers for treasure and rope.  I was quite happy with the end result and think that Dad will be pretty surprised :)
