I need to make a cake that resembles a BBQ grill by Saturday. I've searched other such cakes and am pulling a little of this and a little of that from them to make my own version. However, I'm kind of stumped on the actual wire grill part. In one of the ideas I pulled up, they used wooden dowels painted silver - I don't want to do that. Another piped the lines on - Not real straight. Another rolled fondant logs which was ok.

Any suggestions?

I painted spaghetti with silver lustre dust mixed with vodka for the grill grate. I baked the cake in an aluminum pan so it would look like one of those disposable grills, and it made for less work because I didn't have to decorate the sides.

I used the lollipop sticks, painted silver and hotglued together and LEDs , black gumpaste for the coal, hid the LEDs under the coal, it really looked, as if the coal was burning

I used a round cooling rack. I had made one out of color flow, but my burgers and weenies were to heavy and broke it.

I thought the best option was the dowels painted. I tried spaghetti and royal icing but both broke. And i couldn't get the spaghetti to hold color.
