I wanted to make a bridge of some sort on the top of a cake - the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn, NY to be exact and I am at a loss as to how to do it and what my options are. Any suggestions? I was thinking of doing it in RI, but I can't find a sideview picture to trace the design. Is it possible to do this for Saturday and would it hold up? It only needs to be about 6 inches long.
Any help would be appreciated ASAP since I have to try to do this with 3 kids (under 4 yrs) running around!
Oh this is the Brooklyn Bridge dessert. It's an idea anyhow.
thanks...any other ideas?

and one more
the poor little bridge that just gets NO respect
Thanks Doug...I actually have those pictures, but I am unsure as to what to do with them exactly. I don't want to do an edible image, and the bridge is too small to trace over. When I enlarge it it gets too fuzzy and too big. I may just try to do something in gumpaste for a 3-d effect and place it on top of the cake. But my modeling skills leave a LOT to be desired!
print out to size the one you like best.
lay a sheet of paper over it.
tape both to a window.
trace over it in very fine ink lines
take tracing to photo copier and enlarge as big as needed.
