This past fathers day I wanted to make a special cake for my stepfather. Since he likes to cook, this idea for a Fathers Day Grill Cake was perfect. It was not easy, but it came out pretty good.

I used two 8″ round pans and stacked each one on top of the other. I covered the bottom with white icing and the top with black icing. I used grey icing to line the top part of the grill and also used the star tip to make the grass along the bottom.

The legs of the grill were the hardest and I eventually used black coloring pencils cut in half and pushed into the cake. You can also use pretzels covered in black icing as well to get that desired effect. I purchased a kids cooking set from Toys R us to get the spatula and food. Or you can just borrow some from a friends child.

This cake was a lot of fun to make and sure made my stepfather smile.
