Pirate Ship Birthday Cake

Idea came from Enchanted Cakes for Children by Debbie Brown.  Used MM Fondant, Debbie's recipe (in book) for the spongecake, and a chocolate butter-cream frosting from allrecipes.com.  The gold treasure, seaweed, fish, rocks, gold treasure scattered on the ship, ship planks and decorative ship parts, rope, barrels, and anchor are all MM fondant.  The flag I made on the computer, the "sand" is a mix of brown sugar, graham crackers, and gold sprinkles.  Also, the X marks the spot is a fruit roll up and the pirate is a figure from our party store.
 We had a combo party for a three and two year old.  The candles were the "cannons" (three candles on one side and two on the other for both boys to blow out).
 The shipwreck (after it was served...):
