(Corn)Hole in one! Cake

For my wonderful sister's birthday, my Dad and Mom made her a beautiful Corn Hole set from scratch.  So to continue on this theme, I decided to decorate her cake to look like a Corn Hole game.  Needless to say, it didn't look nearly as good as the real set, but it sure was fun to do!

1 Pound Cake
White icing
Green icing
Graham Crackers
Pretzel rods
Beige icing

Ice the sides of the cake with white icing.  Pipe the green icing on top of the cake with a star icing tip.  Wet the rim of a small cookie cutter and gently press it through two graham crackers.  Once the holes are in place, ice the crackers with the beige icing and place the M&Ms on top to resemble the corn hole bags.  Push two pretzel rods into the cake and lean a cracker on top of it.  Repeat with the other cracker.  It's almost too cute to eat... but not quite!
