Last week my friend asked me to do an Army Cake for her Son's Birthday. It was a lot of fun to make. The best part about it was that it wasn't stressful. When you are creating dirt, you don't have to be perfect. I baked two round cakes, one 9 x 13 and 12 mini cupcakes. I didn't want it to look like the shape of a 9 x 13 so I cut jagged pieces and placed mini cupcakes upside down to look like boulders.
