I made this Indiana Jones on the Run Cake for my son’s 6th birthday. He was really into Indiana Jones.
I made two 9×13 cakes. One chocolate and one vanilla. Placed them side by side with icing in between long sides touching to make bigger cake. Iced with homemade crisco icing tinted brown except one corner.
Made a pond in that corner iced with blue tinted icing. Made ripples in water. Sprinkled Toffee baking bits to make sand. Made green dots around border with tinted icing. I bought a topper set from local grocery store. Rubber snakes and trees and rocks from a play set.
It was a real big hit. And was my first attempt at making my own cakes.
