"I created foil templates to trace the homemade gingerbread dough into the shapes and sizes needed. I used graham crackers for the deck
of the ship. Pretzels
and graham crackers were used for the dock. A cheese grater was used
to smooth out all edges for perfect alignment. I mixed food coloring with icing to
creates the desired murky color of the ship.
Sea creatures, sand, rocks, pirate's booty, masts, and wheel are all edible. The
only non-edible items are the sails."
