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???
depending on the shade of dirt brown, there are many things!
crushed graham crackers or nilla wafers, brown sugar, crushed oreo cookies (w/o the filling)
Oreos without the filling!! Have used that many times, tastes great!!
Oreos!!! I throw a handfull (with the filling!) into the food processor and let 'er rip! Best tasting dirt ever!
Oh yeah - another one: chocolate teddy grahams. If you don't have a food processor toss them into a zip top bag and put the rolling pin to it.
I got rave reviews from Vanilla wafers that I bought at Trader Joes.
I love crushed oreo crumbs and if you mix in 2tsp of melted butter it will still be crumbly but also be moist like real soil! Love this!
Edit to add: You want the orange clay look so crush up vanila wafers and mix in some orange color to the melted butter and mix thouroughly into the crushed cookies. Or if youcan get your hands on some powdered orange color then let that rip in the blender with the cookies so the color is evenly distributed. Should taste like a dream!
I took brown sugar and then dyed it with the brown gel paste that we use for fondant. It turned out great!
Crushed cookies are perfect and not stinky like brown sugar. However, I would suggest sprinkling them on the cake the day the cake will actually be eaten, as they will go stale overnight and not taste so great...
I use the pecan sandies too...they're a nice shade of brown.
and any of these toppings would taste good with the cake and icing?!?!?!
They are cookies. Why wouldn't they taste good with cake and icing?
Dry chocolate cake trimmings in a low tem oven then crush.
you know KoryAK your RIGHT!!! Thanks everyone!
baseball feilds have orange clay I would do the cookies with food color it will be more realistic. And of coarse it will taste delish!
