I'm making a cake for a friend of my husbands. It's in the shape of Maine. No kidding. I carved it as best as I could....LOL. Anyway, instead of white, what other color would you recommend for this? I DO have some gumpaste decorations for this..I'm using piping gel for the water on one end....I'm at a loss. I really don't want to use white. What about mint green? Or just the lightest green possible? HELP HELP HELP! LOL

Is it supposed to look like a map?

You could color the whole state in a pale green, blue or even an orange color like a map. I don't know what decorations you have but you could do a few of the Interstates and maybe make a few road signs. Make sure you post pics. Good luck.

Well, he said he wanted it to look like Maine. He wanted Bangor on there (it's for his wife's birthday), because she was born there and then the small town they're retiring to real soon. She loves cabins, so I made a cabin and a mountain range and also 3 buildings for Bangor. I was going for a 3D effect. I was going to draw some roads and some small lakes (using piping gel) because there are lakes around where they are going to live. I"m also doing the "shoreline" using piping gel. It's NOT going to be exact but close enough I think. I think light light green would be ok you think?
