I'm going to eat dirt!

Don't have any children, but I imagine a cake like this would appeal to some youngsters:

That's pretty cool, dirt cakes have been around quite a while.... 

Back when my daughter and her cousin had a combined 6th birthday party, I made 

dirt cake filling and filled clay pots, added edible plants and let a batch of gummy worms

tunnel thru the "dirt". Needless to say it was a pretty big hit. :)

Still popular as a child's activity at parties I go the beach route and use small plastic buckets and toys.

Bake a three layer sheet cake and carve out pieces to fit the buckets then let the guests go at it!

Graham cracker crumbs mixed with light brown sugar for the sand topping and candy shells and fish (candy melts poured into plastic molds) keep them busy for quite a while.

Makes a great little party favor.

 

TF your cake is really quite good.

Nice sharp BC corners on the cake as well as  realistic scale (toys vs construction site) .

Was this just on a whim or do you have a party coming up?

Actually I didn't make it, saw it on facebook, but it wasn't credited to anyone so I didn't know who to thank for the fun picture.

I saw a little kid (4-5) the other day wearing a T-shirt that said I eat dirt.
