Outdoor Sheet Cake

You all know how much I like sheet cakes right? Yea, not at all. I put aside my dislike for sheet cakes to make this half sheet outdoor cake for my brother.

Obviously, it is chocolate. I didn't smooth the icing on the top because I liked the idea of it being all rough, as it is supposed to be ground. The river is bc base with piping gel over top. Trees are bc on pretzel sticks. The tent and sticks for the fire are made out of chocolate. Grass all over and there ya have it.

This cake takes a lot of icing so make several batches. The icing for the trees needs to be stiff so they don't droop.
