I am putting the finishing touches on a Wall-e cake and need dirt.
Yeah I could use crushed oreos but I need to add different textures like the movie.
I could use a combo of oreos, graham crackers and what else?
Vanilla wafers crushed become a fine sand. Chocolate chip cookies crushed are another alternative to just plain black dirt.
maybe some chunks of milk chocolate???
any kind of crushed cookie or cracker will work -- even brown sugar can work
my sand is 2 part graham crackers, 2 part vanilla wafers and 1 part brown sugar.
Go to the cookie section of your grocery store and you will find plenty of things.
Did you make the cake out of chocolate? That way it seems like they are eating dirt as well.
Well the birthday boy wanted vanilla cake so the cake is vanilla.
I am trying to steer away from sand... so I will post pictures!
I just returned from the store. I came home with chocolate creme cookies, chocolate chip and ginger snaps plus chocolate graham crackers and normal graham crackers.
Gonna make me some dirt!!
Okay here it is my Wall-e cake with DIRT!!!
Its far from perfect but I am new to this....
What do you think about the dirt? I used a little of everything!
Argg!! I cant post it here because I cant get it to resize!! I did post it in my photos!
THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE!!!
Crushed chocolate graham crackers?
Could someone please help answer my question. Will brown sugar last on a dummy cake for 11 days?
ok i did but moderator has to approve it.
didn't apply the brown sugar until i know if it will last 10 days at the fair.
Are you rolling the dummy in it? Like coating the surface? Or using it as "sand" for a theme of some sort?
AHi, I used crushed all chocolate Oreo cookies for the dirt in my gardening cake. Hth:smile:
A:-( sorry just realised you were looking for a different colour and texture!!
I have used Royal icing to cover the cake and colored it light brown but since it is a fair scene i wanted to put brown sugar on top of cake to make it look more like dirt.
This is for the AV Fair it is a theme cake i wanted to just add brown sugar to make it look more like dirt but not dark, like at a carnival fair. The theme is Diamonds are Fairever. Not coating it just adding for more texture on top of cake around the rides and ticket booth and food booth.
Where would i find a picture i put on here for webmaster to approve it after it is added?
