I'm doing a family reunion cake which takes place at this family's river house each year. The cake has to travel 1.5 hours and we have decided to do 2 9x13 side by side, one layer. They want one of the mini ball sun cakes added on the top with a river scene under. I can think of plenty of stuff if I remove the sun. Please any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Ashley, I probably won't be much help but noticed you could use some suggestions. How about making a river flowing crosswise through the cake with some trees around it and a picnic table with chairs? If you are comfortable with fondant/gumpast, you can make a tree swing coming out of a tree. The type of swing that kids and adults alike will swing off of into the river. An easy way to get a river is to use white bc and then blue piping gel over it. Look in my pics for an example. I am not sure how to tie in the sun cakes though.
