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,
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.
Thanks guys for the tips. Really helps a lot.
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.
