I've been asked to make a cake in the shape of Delaware with several cities written on it 'map like'. No problem. But they also want to incorporate john deere and the beach.
A John Deere tractor pushing the the "map" into the ocean?
Sometimes common sense has to intervene. You are the cake artist.
I've never been to Delaware, but I'm assuming there is some form of agriculture? Make it a resource type map having at least one field (with a John Deere tractor in it). Then add the coastline with any beach related items you want and you are good.
Perhaps a John Deere tractor pushing all the credit card companies into the ocean?
(Oh wait, no politics on the boards...)
Cakes in the shape of states (NJ, TX) have been showing up regularly on the cake shows.
DE would be pretty easy.
