I am a complete novice when it comes to cake decorating. I will be doing a train theme cake for my boy's party in couple weeks and am looking for ideas on how to do a bridge and also some ideas for rocks that I would be using around a water section. Also I will not be using fondant.

Any help would be great,
Thanks,

You can buy candy rocks; I'm not sure what size you are after, but see this:

If you don't have time to order, you might find them locally at a candy shop or Walmart.

For the bridge, you could make it out of small straight pretzels held together with melted chocolate.

They have bigger rocks that are bubblegum too.

I think a bridge made from rice krispie treats would work too. If you ice it with a thin layer of gray or black BC, it may look just like one of those train bridges made from rocks.
