A plum cake Ship, a sea of sweetness and a lot of fantasy….
Whip the butter with the sugar until you obtain a smoothie and white cream.
Add the eggs, one-by-one, alternating them with a tablespoon of sugar and baking powder.
Continue by adding flour and mix the all gently (if you use a food mixer, program it at the lowest speed).
Cover the plum cake pan with the baking paper and fill it with the mixture for the three-fourths.
Bake at 170° for 45-50 minutes.
Take out of the oven and let it cool.
With the help of a knife, cut the plum cake sides and the two double-ended, in order to obtain the “prow” and the “stern” of the boat.
Overlay all the cut pieces on the hull and place them as you prefer to get a more realistic boat. Cover and fix everything with some pistachio flavored spread.
Use the almond paste to cover the boat and mold it with the help of a smoother.
Work the cocoa sugar paste with the hands and after few minutes roll it with a rolling pin. Put a decorative sheet which gives a “wood effect” above it and get a slight pressure with the rolling pin.
Use a wheel to cut strips of sugar paste and apply them on the cake with some edible adhesive. To get a more realistic effect use the modeling silicone tool to simulate the nails of wood.
Mold in your hands the cocoa sugar paste until you get two little balls. Place them one above the other and then on the cake. Proceed by covering both sides. They will be the railing of the board. Use some edible adhesives to paste the all.
With the Decortwist create a small cord and apply it over the row of balls, so you will get the “handrail”. Get a slight pressure.
Use the gum paste to realize the sails, cutting out the shape with the wheel.
With a round nozzle, pierce them in two places and put them on the sticks in oven-safe paper.
With the Decortwist get some strips and unleash your imagination to realize original decorations with the pirates cutter; applies them on the sails, using the edible adhesives as glue.
Cut a square of gum paste, fold the two ends and curls the whole. Use the Decortwist to create the rope which will envelop your sail. Place the whole on the stick in oven-safe paper.
Now your ship is ready to sail the seas!
