Want Fries With That Hot Dog Cake?

When I found out that today is Hot Dog Day, I knew I had to share this fun creation. It really takes "semi-homemade" and pushes it to the next level, everything can be bought, but the end result is completely unique. The Hot Dog and Fries Cake is a completely edible, ridiculously sweet cake shaped to look like a hot dog in a bun and french fries. All you need is a loaf cake, a few Twinkies, red frosting, yellow icing, red icing and some green fruit. If you'd rather not use Twinkies, substitute with different kind of cake in the center. Either way, your little ones — and big ones too — are going to love this treat.

To see how to assemble one for yourself,

Hot Dog and Fries Cake
From Family Fun

1 baked loaf cake
2 Twinkies
1 cup hot-dog red frosting (red and brown mixed)
Yellow icing in a tube
Red icing in a tube
Green fruit slices or gumdrops, diced (optional)

  1. To make the hot dog bun, cut the lengthwise sides of the loaf off (as shown), saving the extra cake for the French fries. Remove the cake center and place the two Twinkies in the "bun."
  2. Frost them hot-dog red. Add a squirt of mustard (yellow icing) ketchup (red icing), or relish (diced gumdrops or fruit slices).

I love this!!! I make a Spaghetti and Meatballs cake. You bake your cake batter in an oven safe bowl. Then you extrude buttercream frosting through a potato ricer. This gives the appearance of "spaghetti". Then you make a thick strawberry puree and pour it over the "spaghetti". Place some of the round chocolate Rochere candies on top and it looks just like spaghetti and meatballs!!!

That's crazy! I don't like Twinkies, so I wouldn't make it for me but it would be such a hit with my family!
