This cake was a lot of fun and fairly easy too. It was a butter pecan cake with butter becan BC and vanilla MMF. The "dirt" was dried chocolate cake crumbs, pecans and heath bars ground together, yumm. The flowers were gum paste or fondant. The cake board was covered with MMF then etched and painted to look like slats of wood. This was so fun to make and so far I think it's my favorite of my cakes.
