Heyy guys!
I'm thinking of making the Father's Day/Grill Cake (from the website) for this weekend (with a friend-should be fun!)

For some reason I'm having trouble with a part of it which is probably really obvious.

It is:

"Make hamburgers and hot dogs out of candy clay. Indent and paint grate marks on hot dogs. Use a cut bag to flow thinned royal icing cheese over hamburgers. With leftover candy clay, make a 1 in. wide rim piece, the circumference of top."

What do they mean by make a 1 in wide rim piece, the circumference of top? Is it the grill or the burger? I'm kinda lost lol icon_confused.gif

So since you guys are always so cool and supportive, could you help me? Thanks!

Yeah it's not very clear! But I'd say it's defo the rim of the BBQ itself, so you've got an edge to it, also I always thought the cheese was made of fondant, doing it in flowing RI sounds a bit tricky, not to mention the potential for a very messy cheesy BBQ! icon_eek.gificon_biggrin.gif

Ya, I kinda thought of that last night. Thanks anyways though! Do you think I should make the cheese out of fondant?

I made a grill cake for my son's 11th birthday a few weeks ago and made it all out of fondant. That way the kiddos could chomp on it if they wanted and not break a tooth if they were made out of gumpaste. icon_smile.gif
