Dane's Ant Birthday Cake
My 4 yr old wanted a bug party and he really wanted a giant ant cake. This is what we came up with. I used a couple of ball cake pans for the ant. I used a 2 8 in. round cake pans and layered those. I cut the edges to make the hill. I crushed up regular graham crackers for the ant hill dirt...then crushed up chocolate graham crackers to put on top of chocolate frosting for the other dirt. Piped on the green grass and the little ants are tootsie rolls that I put in the microwave 5 sec. to shape. The legs are black twizzlers attached by chocolate frosting. It ended up turning out pretty cute. The kids loved it!
