The SS Chocolate Cake!

We sailed upon our saucy ship, The SS Chocolate Cake
With icing sugar sails, so pure and white
The hull composed of chocolate sponge, the finest I could bake
Every mouthful will be delicate and light
Then waterproofed with butter cream, and royal icing paint
With colours that befit a lovely boat
She sails on seas of sugar strands, and looking rather quaint
I’m really not to sure that it would float
When sailed across a table there is one thing that I know
That everyone will ask us for a slice
Although I decorate a cake to put on quite a show
The eating of it’s more than twice as nice!
