AI am new to this forum, and need a little help. I have been baking/decorating cakes for a little less than a year now, so I am still very much an amateur. I have to make a beach-themed cake this week (my first one), and was wondering what the best thing is to use as sand. Graham cracker crumbs, maybe? Thanks!:)
Graham crackers, vanilla cookies, granulated & brown sugar. . .mix it up to get a good color and of course make sure it tastes good.
Toasted cake crumbs.
AOr blended some caramel, you can choose the color you like. Looks good and it's a little sparkling.
I like to use graham cracker crumbs. You can use it dry or if you want it to be packed together, like wet sand, mix the cracker crumbs with melted butter.
I use a combo of crushed rice krispies and brown sugar.
I always use graham cracker crumbs that has been pulverized to powder in my processor. Any kind of white cookie will work...the pecan sandies makes pretty sand too.
AThanks for the tips ya'll! One more question...how do the graham cracker crumbs and vanilla wafer cookies not get soft and mushy on the icing?
AI usually use Nilla wafers, but I couldn't get any last time and used coconut cookies instead. That went over very well!
You could also use graham crackers.
I usually pack down a small amount then pile it on top for some texture. I think they taste pretty good mixed up with the icing. A little luster dust will work well for some shimmer also.
