My 9 y.o. son had a camping themed birthday party this year.  This is the cake that I made for it:




I used a 9 x 13 sheet cake and cut off a section on one end.  I broke that into pieces and used it to make a hill on the cake in one corner.  I then made a stream going down the hill and put chocolate rocks on the sides of it.  The trees were made from sugar cones and the fire from large pretzel sticks.  The tent was put together from graham crackers.

I'm very proud of this one.  This is probably the best cake I've made yet for a party and the best thing was that it was incredibly easy to make!

I would rather be bitten by a snake than walk thru a spiderweb and not know where the spider is!

Thanks everyone!

And yes, it wasn't easy to see it being dismantled.   There's a pic on my blog of the remains from the evening, and it's pitiful.

It was so funny hearing them yell what parts of the cake they wanted though - "I want rocks!  I want water!  I want a tree!"   Grin

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

What an awesome cake!  I also think it's awesome that your son had a camping themed party.  Anyone get poison oak?  Wink
