So glad to have found all of you...
I've seen light brown sugar used as 'sand' on cakes, does it need to be dried first or is it o.k. to just sprinkle it on the frosting?
just sprinkle it on...I have also used sugar and cinnamon mixture, this is a little less course.
Hi..I've used crushed graham cracker squares. It worked great!
Can't speak for brown sugar, but I used crushed graham crackers. See the seashell cake in my photos.
Or you could use crushed up vanilla wafers. I think that would taste better too!! HTH!!
ETA: graham crackers is another great idea!
Keeble Pecan Sandies make great sand, but remember to warn folks with nut allergies!
I used a combo of crushed Nilla wafers and light brown sugar and thought it turned out well. Good luck!
I use Sandies too! I also add a little clear sparkling sugar for that slight glitter sand has.
I also like to use the flower shaped butter cookie the one with a hole in the middle. Just because I like the taste better. I crush them in a plastic bag using a rolling pin.
When I was a kid my grandmother would buy those cookies for us and we would put a finger through the hole and eat around the cookie. I was suprised that they still made them.
