I considered making some of the elements out of fondant, but decided against it since the cake was for a group of eight year old boys. So all of the decorations are chocolate. I piped the chocolate fence, skulls and crossbones, and the tombstones and used chocolate rocks for the pathway. We added some LED lights behind the tombstones to give some illumination - they looked great in the lower light of the party. I love those things - I used them in Ben's ghost cake and his Monster House cake and when everything is over, I just clean them up and turn them off to use again another time.
