Crushed Graham Cracker for ocean themed cupcakes

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a cupcake order for ocean-themed cupcakes. I've seen decorations using graham cracker crust to mimic sand. I'm wondering if anyone has tried it and if that actually tastes good. Should I limit the cupcake to a chocolate flavor in order to go with the crushed graham cracker? I imagine that something like red velvet wouldn't taste good with the crushed graham cracker. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I used crushed digestive biscuits for sand (always have) and think it works great. I just don't 'get' those who use brown sugar - I think it looks like crap - not at all like sand!

I think it would go fine with most things. Think of all the different pies with graham cracker crusts...endless variety of flavors. Plus it's only a sprinkling of decoration on top. People also use brown sugar or a mixture of the two. If you're really worried about it, you could mix some brown powdered food coloring with white sugar or look for brown sanding sugar.
