My DD's class has been learning about the Charles River in Massachusetts all year. For their end of year of year party I have offered to make a cake with the Charles River on it. I am very much a novice! I have looked at pictures in the galleries and taken some ideas. I have to keep the cake nut free for allergies in the class.

It will be a chocolate cake. Thinking that I will make the river with white frosting and then cover with blue piping gel. I have graham crackers and oreos that I can crush for dirt on the side of the river. I bought some jelly beans that are brown and beige and sort of look like rocks...just not sure I can use them because of trace nut issues. I also bought ice cream cones to cover with green bc (but am wondering if it would be too much and be too tall for a single layer cake). Wondering if I should make most of the cake green?

What other ideas do you think I should do? The cake will be 9x13, so it isn't a lot of space. Thanks for the ideas!
