Happy Father's Day 2011

What dad doesn't love to eat or grill??

Well I have the perfect thing to please either!

It's a grill cake. How cute is this??

I saw something like this somewhere. ( I think in a magazine )

I thought my grandsons would get a kick out of it.

The cake was baked in a prepared aluminum bowl.

The coal and fire are cookie crumbled and mixed with black gel, and m&m's.

The hamburgers are oat meal cookies brushed with cocoa powder.

and topped with "cheese" colored fondant.

The hot dogs are stubby pretzels wrapped in fondant

and tinted with red and blue color and brushed with cinnamon.

The lines were also made by dipping a tooth pick

in cinnamon to create "grill marks"

Both the legs and handles were wrapped in fondant as well.

The body of the grill was frosted in white

then sprayed red with wilton red food spray.

I think this would make a great 4th of July cake too,try it!
