I had email request for a 14" sq cake Lion King theme for a retiring headmistress. I replied that I didnt really do cakes that large (remembert he size of our UK ovens!) but if they wanted to let me know how many it was for I could suggest some ideas and prices.
This came back

Need to feed about 90.
What about making two and sticking them together.
The other idea was to have like a cakewith a long winding road, On the road a bike with a woman riding it, 3/4 of way along.
Along the road either side little groups of things that would be memorable to her Children at play, a mini Lion KIng group, Queen Elizabeth, (she dressed up as her once),a group of nuns from sister act. etc. I can send you a little picture of a few ideas if you like.
As you travel through life may these little memories travel with you.
Happy Retirement Sian.

Any suggestions?

yes, tell them to ask someone else to make the cake!! Sounds like you'll have your hands full!

like London and Cardiff --

think UP not out.

multi-tier cake in the style called "Road of Life"

examples from gallery:

make it 2 or 3 or more tiers and wind the road up the side.

tutorial on winding (spiral) road:

This sounds like it could be a very fun cake

and it plays right into use of lots of fondant.
