Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I made a pirate ship cake for fun. This is the first try and I learned so much and how I want to do the next one. When sculpting I didn't use a stiff enough cake nor did I put it in the freezer which would have made cutting a lot easier and less stressful. I did cover the whole thing in chocolate ganache which was great for the stability but I would add buttercream icing over it for more flavor then put the fondant on. I will definitely make this again.
