I've been asked to create a Florida themed cake by a couple who are going on holiday there in a few weeks. As I live in the UK and have never been to America, I don't know a great deal about Florida!

The cake is going to be a map and I want to include all the essential landmarks, such as beaches, lakes, a Mickey Mouse symbol for Disney land...that kind of thing.

Seeing as a lot of you are from the US I wondered whether you could help me out with any important land marks or important places that I shouldn't miss off the cake!

I would suggest (as a native Floridian) that you include Kennedy Space Center in East Central Florida. Also Miami (as in Miami Dolphins football) and St. Augustine (oldest city) should be represented.

Another native Floridian speaking: Consider including oranges (or orange trees if you are really ambitions) and some representation of the Everglades (http://www.nps.gov/ever/index.htm).

Perfect! this is the kind of thing I need. Thank-you! Anyone else from Florida got any places that they think I should include?
