I need to make this church into a cake by next Sunday. I want to impress them but also make something manageable in one week.
I also can make it in any flavor and want that to be unique and impressive as well.

My church just finished this new building and is having a potluck and then the dedication ceremony will be held in the new church for the first time. There will be alot of people at the potluck and it will be a good chance for me to show what I can do.

Would love your creative/technical thoughts!

Can't tell much from the size of the picture but it sure looks easy enough to duplicate. If you start now, the steeple and the extended piece with the cross on it can be made from fondant/gumpaste and be ready by next week. Windows, either poured sugar, melted jolly ranchers, gelatin(definitely do that one asap if you choose it).

I am thinking enough cake for 75.
Should I I use 1/2 sheets and carve them down. Is this going to need any other support besides a dowel through the middle?
Whats a good cake for building structure?

I wouldn't think you'd need any structural support for the cake itself. I'm sure if you do that sheltered area, it'll need it.

Pound cakes are really good for carving. If you like chocolate, the Elisa Strauss recipe is really good.

2 1/2 sheets, stacked, carved(reserving trimmings for extra center height) should be plenty for the main part of the cake.
