Farm/Garden Cake

My brother-in-law requested this cake for my sister-in-law's birthday.  He wanted a farm cake with chickens, a goat, and dogs (border collies specifically). Everything is edible: fudge sticks for railroad ties, pretzels for the fence, vanilla wafers for the stepping stones, crushed graham crackers for the path, and crushed chocolate teddy grahams for the dirt in the beds. All other decorations are fondant and gum paste. Vines and flowers are buttercream. The cake is dark chocolate mayonnaise cake with vanilla buttercream.
