    As a girl scout leader on this 100th year of girl scouts, we are wanting to make a float for the big parade we have in our area around labor day. Can you share how you made the cake?? that is exactly what I had in mind! We want it to stand out but we also need it to be cheap!! :)

      Thank you,

    Your float is amazing, we are wanting to create a similar float for the fourth of July 2011. Is there any way you could list the materials you used for the cake? Did you make the Uncle Sam yourself? How in the world did you do that? Any advice would be a big help!
