Rack of Ribs, Corn on the Cob Smothered in BBQ Sauce By anmnewlin1

By springlakecake For a bridal shower. Buttercream cake with gumpaste details. The bottle is a real wine bottle, but i made a custom label.
By KitKat0874 I made these for a church cookout. I got a lot of inspiration from some other “picnic” cakes on here!! I used the mini vanilla wafers to make the burgers a bit smaller. I also had made cake pops the other day and had some left over balls, so I used that for the burger. Watermelon is fondant with edible marker and the chips are broken corn flakes. Vanilla cupcake iced with BC and “checkered” with fruit leather. TFL!!!
By kezra1012 This was the first time I used Fondant and Candy Clay for a cake. I think it worked out well. I used spagetti for the grates and painted them black. The “coals” are sliced marshmallow paint with food coloring. Thanks for looking!

I airbrushed the seeds on first then the red and last the green. It was a really fun cake and went over well, everyone loved it. TFL
By zeek71 This is a chocolate cake covered in fondant then airbrushed. It was a 40th birthday cake for my friend Scott, who is a big steak fan. I presented it in a tiny charcoal grill with a battery powered light placed on the bottom. Then I put dry ice in some water under the grill to make it smoky.
