Crushed chocolate cookies or graham crackers.

I made a construction site cake last weekend. I took chocolate cookies (I think they were chocolate Teddy Grahams), poured them into a large Ziploc bag, and crushed them finely with a rolling pin. Before I put the crushed cookies on the cake, I piped a buttercream dam of the area where I wanted the cookies to be contained. It kept the cookie crumbs from shifting during travel & worked beautifully.

For my beach cake I mixed a little binder (buttercream) with an (undoctored since it was only getting crumbled) box of butter pecan, crumbled, used. I liked that I could texture it without it falling around on my cake since it had a binder.

The excess I made cake balls. icon_razz.gif

I put a bag of pecan sandies in my food processor for my sand around my treasure chest. Actually, it wasn't the "sandies" but just shortbread cookies.
