Does anyone have any ideas on how to make a gravel road for a farm cake? The customer does not want a dirt rd. I can't think of anything gray to make the gravel out of. I tried coloring nerds but that did not work. The nerds are the right size just the wrong color. Any help is appreciated Thanks! Have a blessed day!

hmmm...i'm racking my brain for you! my only thought is to go to the seasonings aisle and look for seeds of some sort...maybe you could color white sesame seeds grey and then mix in a little bit of poppyseeds?

can't wait to hear what others have come up with! there's got to be something better than what i can offer!

I have done a stone road by using chocolate rocks. Its a chocolate candy that is shaped and colored to look like rocks. All my package says is "candy store" chocolate rocks. HTH

At some of the candy stores - they have candy chocolate rocks. They should be about the right size.

Can you color Rice Krispies gray? At first I thought of Grape Nuts, but they might be tough on the teeth.
