I just spent the last three days prepping this one for my best friend's sons birthday. I had a lot of fun doing this, and enjoyed making the 3D pirate that took more than four hours to assemble. All was fondant with a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing and chocolate pudding filling. It was hit last night and suited the theme really well. I did; however, take this shot before I put a couple of starfish on the cake to hide the seams on the wave. The colours are off on the picture too; the fondant cake base is ivory not flesh coloured like the pirate's face.
These were built on pillar globes that are used for wedding cakes.
I didn't like the seem in the back of his head, so I made him a little bandana to cover it up.
