Rated 5 out of 5 by Angeleyes1382 from I did a smaller version of this cake, but made the same number of buildings. I omitted the train and track and made a road by drawing on wax paper and melting chocolate to make the road. I then transferred the road on top of the buttercream icing on the top of the cake and added grass where there was not a road. I also put sticks in the buildings I wanted on top of cake prior to baking. I went ahead and made extra buildings, just in case. This cake is time consuming, but for a little boy who loves cities and cars it was well worth the look on his face when he saw it. Instead of making flow icing I used a recipe from Creative Cookies using powdered sugar, milk, corn syrup, and flavoring. I wish I could add a picture here, because it turned out beautifully.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JKJENoyes from I struggled getting the buildings to look right and to make them "flow" around the cake correctly. For me, it was quite time consuming!
