Homemade  Father's Day Grill Barbecue Cake

Homemade Father's Day Grill Barbecue Cake

I used the Wilton filling pans to create the Father's Day Grill Barbecue cake to give the space for the charcoal (marshmallows tossed with black icing). It worked great as the black icing doesn't completely coat the marshmallows giving it that ash look. I loosely mixed yellow and red icing to make the flames in the grill. The grate was fondant sprinkled with silver flakes.

The burgers were chocolate cupcake tops, the buns were yellow cupcakes with sesame seeds. I put batter directly in pan to give the right look. Icing for the mustard, ketchup and pickles. The fries are Snickerdoodles cut and topped with red writing icing. Sugar cookies work the same, sprinkle with sugar to look like salt. The hot dogs were light brown fondant with a black food marker to make grill marks.

The cake was made with 100% edible ingredients.

Coolest Father's Day Golf Cake 29

Homemade Father's Day Golf Cake

Homemade Father's Day Golf Cake

This is made from two 9 inch round white cakes with a buttercream filling between them. Make sure to freeze the cakes over night before any frosting is done. The icing is also white buttercream whipped with a hand mixer so it was more spreadable. I divided the icing into three parts and tinted with food coloring to make the green, dark green, blue, and yellow.

Draw the outline of the "course" on with a knife tip or toothpick and "color in the lines". The bunker is crushed vanilla wafers and the water is outlined with sliced almonds. The "rough" is coconut tinted green with food coloring. I made the flag from a lollipop stick and paper flag and the ball is a sixlet. Dad loved his homemade father's day golf cake!

Coolest Fathers Day Golf Ball Cake

My dad is a huge golf player. And for Fathers Day I figured I would make a Fathers Day Golf Ball Cake. Wasn't exactly sure how I would do it so I headed to the store. I lucked out and found a circle pan. You can make any sort of ball with it. PERFECT!!

I than made his favorite cake, chocolate, and covered in buttercream and than covered in fondant. I than took the back of a wine stopper that has a metal ball on it and made the dipples on the ball. I was pretty creative when it came to the grass. I dyed the extra fondant green and ran through a garlic press.

It was a very long process but turned out great.

Homemade Cookie Fathers Day Cake

I made this Cookie Fathers Day Cake using my own chocolate chip cookie dough recipe. I used a 12" round cake pan. I filled it will approximately 14 large scoops of cookie dough. I lined the pan with parchment paper to prevent sticking. The dough was pressed then more chocolate chips were added to the top. It was baked at 335 degrees for approximately 40 minutes.

Once it was completely cooled the border was iced with buttercream icing. I used butter cream tinted blue and red icing to draw and color in the tie. Also butter cream icing was used to create the "family". I put curly ribbon around the edges to make it festive.

Everyone loves a chocolate chip cookie!

Coolest Dad Cake 16

Homemade Dad Cake

Homemade Dad Cake

I made this cake for Fathers day. I made 2 6inch chocolate cakes and frosted them with blue butter cream frosting. I stacked them up, then covered them with blue marshmallow fondant. I made the marshmallow fondant at home with my kitchen aid mixer. I also saved some fondant for the decoration.

I dyed some fondant green for the dots and some red for the tie. Then dyed the leftover blue a bit darker for the bottom of the tie. Then topped it off with the writing in frosting and some around the bottom.

It was actually not very hard at all! Everyone loved this Dad Cake, and thought it was very professional looking. Thanks!
