Unconventional Wedding Cake

This past weekend I made a wedding cake that looked like a lighthouse on a cliff. The groom proposed to the bride at a lighthouse in Hawaii and wanted to recreate that memory with the cake. The cake is a replica of that very lighthouse. The sand at the base is turbinado sugar and the base itself is covered in poured sugar. I created the cliffs by packing some rice crispie treats around the cakes. (I think every bakery is now stocked with Rice Crispies thanks to the Food Network)
The bride and groom are gumpaste and admittedly a little out of scale with the rest of the building. How did they fit through the door? Hmmm... something to ponder.
