Glengarry school days

GPM SchoolhouseI made a cake to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our local museum in Dunvegan, Ontario, the Glengarry Pioneer Museum. It was also the dedication of the Big Beaver one-room schoolhouse, which was recently relocated to the grounds of the museum.
The chocolate cake, to feed 60 guests, featured a fondant replica of the green and white schoolhouse complete with students and a buttercream grass lawn.
My favourite part of the event was when Flora Chisholm, in her 80s, who was one of the original students of the Big Beaver schoolhouse during the 1930s and ’40s, looked at the cake and the little faces looking out the windows and asked, “Which one is me?”
