I just wanted to share a great idea for sand on your beach theme cake. I made one today and "thought" I had grahm crackers. Well turns out I didn't but I did have sugar smacks cereal so I crushed them up and added a little brown and white sugar and it turned out great. It had a really good taste and texture. Just wanted to share. [/img]

As the old saying goes, necessity it the mother of invention....I never would have thought to use cereal. Your cake looks great and I bet it was gobbled up by the kids..( I am assuming vacation bible school by the lettering)

Brown sugar also makes great sand!

While on the subject, I noticed on a recent episode of Food Network Challenge that one of the contestants overbaked some cake crumbs and crumbled them really well. That was a new one for me but sounds interesting since we all usually have those left over. Thanks for the cereal idea b/c most of us always have that in the pantry.

Your welcome for the idea and thanks for the compliments. It did go fast. The cake was the yellow variation of the WASC recipe.

I think the cereal worked so good for the sand because it had the different darker specks in it that sand usually has, plus it wasn't as sweet as all sugar.

Cute ....I have to ask did your VBS theme happen to be "Outrigger Island"?

Yes it was. My mother and I taught the kids coming out of 1st and 2nd grade. It was tiring but really fun.
