This was my first “food” cake I ever tried to make. It was my grandfather’s 69th birthday and I don’t think anyone on this earth loves hot dogs more then he does and I was determined to make him a cake he would never forget. I decided on vanilla pound cake and made my own Apricot filling because that is his favorite. after making one simple poundcake, I carved it into the shape of a hot dog in its bun. I then covered it in white fondant and sprayed the sides yellow and orange to get the “bun” color. I then colored another piece of fondant the color of a hotdog and layered it on top of the other fondant. Then I rolled two pieces of fondant and colored them yellow and red to look like ketchup and mustard but something was off about the mustard (that you cant see in the picture) it didnt have the little dots of pepper in it, so I took cinnamon sugar and rolled it into the yellow fondant and sure enough it was identical to the mustard that my Grandfather loves! Hope you enjoy.
P.S. My Grandpa loved it…in case you were wondering!
