  • Graham cracker squares
  • Gummy fishes or fish crackers
Directions:

Let's Go Fishing Snack

Use a pretzel rod or long sticks for a fishing rod. Place peanut butter on the end for bait and dip your fishing rod in a pond of fish.(fish crackers in a bowl.) I have also used these bread stick and cheese combos for this and they work great.

Crab Cake

by Tabatha Persons (Boonville, NY, USA)

I made this cake for my mothers birthday because one of her favorite seafood dishes is king crab. The cake itself is chocolate cake. The sand is made out of my own peanut butter frosting recipe. The colored frosting is homemade buttercream frosting.

The cake started out as three cakes baked in pie tins. I placed two of them together and cut the cake to form the body of the crab. I then took the third cake and cut it into small slits and arranged them into the crabs claws.

The eyeballs and the front claws were hand molded and colored out of gumpaste. The water is made from blue and white buttercream frosting that I had swirled with a paint brush.
