Pirate Ship Cakes ROCK!!

 Is there anything that makes a person happier in the entire world than 2 lbs of sugar blended into this homemade chocolate frosting? NO!
Of course until you go to take the cake out of the pan and this happens:

Did I panic - Nope. I just said screw it. I am already invested in this cake. It is going to happen. I promised. I hopped in the car and drove to the grocery store and bought 2 cakes undecorated. Am I feeling bad-Nope.
It ended up working better because I truly needed 2 flat cakes as I had to cut pieces and stack them so I couldn't have the lop sided cake that came out of my oven even if they did stick to the pan. Doesn't look like she cares as long as it is frosted.

The assemble went pretty smoothly after that.
Is it perfect to me no.
Does she love it? YES and that is all that matters.
Soon we are off to bowl at a pirate party with Spiderman wrapping paper.
Is there anything better in the world? I don't think so.
