Bring the great outdoors to your child's birthday with this campout cake.

What you'll need

  • 2 baked 9-inch round cakes
  • 4 cups green frosting
  • Graham crackers
  • Gumdrops
  • Pretzel sticks
  • Necco wafers
  • Chocolate cookie crumbs
  • Marshmallow trees (see recipe below)
  • Colored frosting and gel icing

How to make it

  1. Layer the cakes and frost them green. Build a campfire with graham cracker-crumb ashes, gumdrop flames and pretzel stick logs.

  2. For the campers' sleeping bags, frost graham cracker quarters with bright colors and decorate with gel icing. Draw a camper's face with the icing onto a Necco wafer and place on top of each sleeping bag.

  3. Arrange the campers around the "fire" and add a sprinkle of cookie dirt and a few marshmallow trees.

  4. Marshmallow Trees: In a saucepan over medium heat, melt 16 large marshmallows with 2 tablespoons butter, stirring constantly.

  5. Remove from the heat and add green food coloring and 2 cups cornflakes, stirring well after each addition.

  6. Spray hands with cooking spray and mold cone-shaped trees. Place trees on a waxed paper-lined tray to cool.
