You’ve heard of the TALL SHIPS. We call these the SMALL SHIPS!
These sweet sailing vessels are made from three cupcakes covered first in yellow-tinted frosting.
The masts and prow are thin breadsticks dipped in chocolate melting wafers, and we used melted chocolate to glue them together.
The red flags are fruit roll-ups.
The crow’s nest is a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.
The poop deck at the back is a Famous Chocolate Wafer surrounded by pretzel squares.
The portholes on the side are chocolate M&Ms.
And here’s a real trick: The sails are phyllo dough. We cut them into sail shapes, draped over tin cans and baked lightly to make them look like they’re filled with wind.
That’s that. Now you’re ready to sail away!
