Introduction: Picnic Cake

About: I love Instructables but rarely get time to post anything.
This is a cake I made for the dessert I was supposed to bring to a picnic/party when my other plans fell through the night before.  After making the two round cakes and stacking them, I frosted them and covered them in homemade fondant.  For decoration, I put red (strawberry?) licorice ropes around the edges, made a fondant/food coloring watermelon, found a small basket and fabric scraps lying around the house, and put some plastic (non-edible) ants trailing to the watermelon on top of the cake.
