Coolest Fathers Day Grill Cake

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.

  1. What a wonderful idea. my husband loves to cook as well and it really seems like a great idea, but I do have a question. Are the hotdogs and hamburgers made out of icing as well or are they kids toys? By the way thanks for sharing this wonderful cake. I’ll bet my husband will love it as much as your stepdad did.

  2. I made this cake for my dad and he loved it. However, you can make this thing called candy clay and make the hot dogs and hamburgers with candy clay. They look real and can be eaten. The recipe can be found by googling candy clay recipe.

  3. Thanks for suggesting the candy clay because I was just going to use fake … brilliant cake searching… thanks, cre8asmile

  4. THE GRILL CAKE IS SUCH A NEAT IDEA. I HAVE ONLY MADE ONE FONDANT CAKE SO FAR, AND AM ALREADY HOOKED. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO THINK OF WHAT TO MAKE HUBBY FOR FATHERS DAY AND THIS IS PERFECT. WITH THE HELP OF GRANDDAUGHTER I THINK WE CAN PULL IT OFF. PLAN TO MAKE KABOBS WITH FONDANT ON STICKS AS HAMB AND HOTDOGS LOOK A BIT HARDER. THANK YOU AGAIN KATHY

  5. I read on another forum that you can make the hot dogs and burgers out of candy clay. You can buy it at walmart and just tint it the color.
