Recently made a Jake the pirate ship and the thing I had most trouble with was getting the long mast to stay up straight with the crows nest on it!
The first one I made broke in half after a couple of hours and the second I made a bit thicker but even though I had a dowel rod in it to insert into the cake and used edible glue on the bottom it still tended to lean very slightly! Anyone know how to make it stand straight ? Thanks Bev x
