The project here was to make a Wizard of Oz-themed retirement cake that leads to a house with the phrase "There's No Place Like Staying Home." I was tasked with making the house and helping out a bit with the cake (grass and brick laying, below).
Working from memory rather than reference
Plans for the house made in Flash. I tried to create it
in as few pieces as possible, for stability's sake.
Sunroom located in the back. Windows were made
super tinted for lack of better materials
(we're talking 1/2 in. width for the whole thing)
Coconut grass. And lots of it.
