So again I need assistance. I am making a RaceHorse cake and am actually putting the horse on a track and am hoping to get ideas on how to make dirt for the track. Any ideas. Thanks guys!
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.
I did the same as cakegirl1973 on my garden cake in my pics. chocolate teddy grahams. the color was perfect.
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.
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.
Ditto CakeGirl1973 and Icer101....I used teddygrams for the dirt on my halloween cake and it was perfect.
you are all awesome! thanks
