I made this cake when I first started decorating cakes. It was for my Father-In-Law Birthday. The only thing I found difficult was making the little people. Like I said though it was my first cake to decorate. They did not look bad, just a little fatter then they should have been. LOL

Made this for my son's 8th birthday party. He is a cub scout and thought the whole camping idea would be fun. He loved it and so did all of his friends. It was a blast to make. Put some of my own to it but it was really easy to make.
