    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. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/smile.gif

    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.
