This father’s day BBQ cake was inspired by a similar one I saw on the Wilton website. This one is a 2-layer 10 inch white cake.

Ahead of time I made the burgers and hot dogs out of candy clay. The recipe can be found on the Wilton website. I used chocolate candy clay for the burgers, and white candy clay which I tinted red for the hot dogs and yellow for the cheese.

I used black edible marker for the grill marks on the hot dogs. I also made the rim of the BBQ out of candy clay which I tinted grey.

I iced the side of the cake in grey buttercream and the top in black buttercream. I placed the rim on the top of the cake and molded it to fit. The grill rack was made of lollipop sticks cut to the desired lengths and wrapped in tinfoil. I pressed these into the BBQ rim and then placed the food on top.

I added yellow & orange buttercream writing and a buttercream grass bottom border.
