Kelly the Culinarian: Hot off the grill

Hot off the grill

Today kicks off the beginning of summer and outdoor cooking. I found this little gem at Jewel yesterday and believe me, they're selling very well. These cakes would be easy enough to replicate and they're oh-so-adorable.

So here's how to do it: Bake a yellow cake according to the directions on the package. Slice one of the layers in half. In the middle, apply a "patty" size layer of brown icing to look like the hamburger. Then, using a flat-tipped pastry bag, apply dark-green icing to replicate the lettuce. Next, fill two medium-tipped pastry bags with yellow and red icing and apply in a random pattern to look like condiments. Finally, place the top of the cake back on. In this case, they used white sprinkles on top to look like sesame seeds, but I'm sure your guests will figure out what it's supposed to be without it.

Also, make sure you check out the Food Network's Grilling and Chilling specials this week. There are some awesome recipes to be had through the celebrity specials and such. I've never made dessert on the grill, but I'm always open to more dessert possibilities.
