Backyard Grill

Burgers, hot dogs and shrimp kabobs - all the fixin's for a great backyard picnic. This 2-layer Devils' Food chocolate cake is filled with dark chocolate buttercream and iced with gray vanilla butercream. The burgers were made with cake crumbs, coconut and melted dark chocolate... the result is a fudgy, truffle-like confection. Hot dogs, shrimp and veggies are all made of gum paste.

  1. We just had one of those fire magic outside kitchens built in our back yard by the pool. I've been so eager to have a party to celebrate the addition, but don't really have an occasion to mark coming up. I guess that I could just have a "new grill" party and get one of these fabulous cakes!
