I’ve had this thing for making cakes lately. My boyfriend, Peter, happens to really love hotdogs (strange, I know), so for his 29th birthday I had my first attempt at a hotdog birthday cake, my first ever birthday cake for that matter.
To make the shape of the hotdog, I baked a white cake in a bread loaf tin. Once the cake cooled, I carved it to the shape of the bun. Then, I took the remaining scraps of cake to make the actual hotdog shape. I used food coloring mixed with pre made fondant for the smooth finish.
The ketchup and mustard were just colored frosting. The faux picnic table cloth, fries and pile of ketchup and were also made with colored fondant.
