At our daughters old school, we did this cake for a Christmas party. We used mini m&m's for the lights. It was a lot of fun to do. The cake board however was incredibly HUGE, because we had to write everyone's name around the cake on the board. BUt the kids loved it! this is one of the VERY FEW cakes I have done where we actually rented the pan. Well worth the $2.00 in this case. But I always suggest trying to find a cake you can create on your own!
