I'm doing a baseball field cake for Saturday. I'm wondering if I could use brown sugar for the baselines/diamond. Has anyone used brown sugar for sand or anything else? Any tips? Thanks. icon_smile.gif

For me that would be too sweet on top of the frosting. I like use cream fill cookies. You can buy the mothers brand with dark brown and the white cream help with the taste when smashed.

I made a farm cake recently and used cookies ground down real fine with the mini chopper machine. I have it posted in my photos if you want to see it. The field is done with chocolate grahams and the dirt road is done with butter cookies...both tasted very good with the white cake.
Hope this helps.

the sugar will melt and look wet. Try super fine ground graham cracker crumbs--the ones already done in the box--baking isle in the store. I freeze the left over crumbs for pies, ect.

vanilla oreos, nilla, or any kind of light colored cookie. You can add a small amount of brown or raw sugar to add a bit of sparkle to look like real sand.

I would use vanilla wafers put thru the food processor. Works great and tastes good too!

I used g. cracker (honey I think) also. I will post my cake when I get home from work. My son loved it, and it didn't taste bad at all, but the g.c. did fall off a bit in serving. I didn't really push it in hard to the frosting. Vanilla wafers are too light of a color for me.

When I did my farm cake, I used graham crackers. I just crushed them in a plastic baggie with a rolling pin.

Ok, I re-sized my picture so I hope it will attach this time. What I was saying before I was inturrupted by computer technicalities, is that I used 5 little rectangles of g.c. in the teeny-tiny food processor. I hope this helps. This cake was done way before I ever saw this site, so I was pretty not-so-good!
