I uploaded a picture of my attempt at this cake - it looks almost exactly like the picture on the website, except I"m not so talented with frosting trees. But, as the other reviewer said, you just bake two 9x13 cakes, cut one into two pieces (not in half though, should be about 60/40), frost each as you lay it on the tray, then stand the walls up, stick on the figures, and voila! You're pretty much ready to go. I had one good trick, which was to use my finger to "paint" some frosting from the cake and up over the base of the figurines. This both kept the figurines from falling over and disguised the bases well. Anyway, it's easy and it looks AMAZING. The only thing that's a potential issue is that we have a zillion people coming over for our party and this won't feed them all. I'd say you'll get 20-ish people out of this cake, maybe 30, but because it's all stacked you won't get clean pieces for everyone. No problem, though, I'll just bake a few extra cupcakes and call it good.
