I am making a baseball field and I need something brown that would taste good with cake to make the field. Anyone have any suggestions???

I think graham cracker crumbs are the perfect shade for baseball field dirt.

I grind up cookies for sand and dirt. You can make them anywhere from very fine sand to boulder-sized (comparatively, of course.) I mix and match flavors and colors to get just what I'm looking for.

I often use brown sugar for this. I even add food coloring to make it dark brown or even black if I want it to be soil. Hope that helps!

Last time I needed edible dirt I baked some chocolate cake scraps till they were pretty dry and then whizzed them up in the food processor.

I use nilla wafers, ground up in the blender.... tastes great too! I have also use chocolate wafer cookies with the nilla wafers for a deeper color.

I use brown sugar for sand and chopped up oreo's (after I take the filling out) for dirt.
