When I get stumped for a design, I try to find photos like on postcards or greeting cards or even just artwork or childrens toys etc to get some inspiration from. Heres a link to some civil war postcards with cannons in them...hope this helps!

Thank you! I have decided to go with that, using pics as inspiration. The client and I decided on a battle scene with smaller cannons, thank goodnessicon_smile.gif I am not creative enough to design a cake with no other pictures to even start from, I was never a good drawer, but give me a picture of what you need and i will make it look unbelievable!

Thanks for your helpicon_smile.gif
