The Grill Cake! LOL

Fred told his brother I'd make a cake for the annual family picnic, a Grill Cake--so I had a challenge!

The hot dogs are pretzel rods dunked in melted butterscotch chips, the burgers are cut out of fudgy brownie, and the cheese is gumpaste. The flames are royal icing.

The cake was from scratch, and flavored with a secret blend of extracts! Yummy

The frosting is all real chocolate buttercream, colored black with icing color, and the hot coals and ashes are ruby red petal dust, and powdered sugar colored with a little black icing color.

It was gigglingly received and eaten up!!
