Does anyone have any ideas on how to make a big hot dog cake? Should I start with a big rectangle and carve? Do I have to use fondant? This is my first venture into a big carved cake and I'm nervous!

I was wondering, was that an electric knife he used? Sure looked like it to me.

how big do you want it? I made mine simply by baking a cake in loaf cake and simply rounding out the edges, then cutting a v shaped slit on the middle for the "hot dog" which was made out of tootsie rolls. here it is

If you want to serve a lot of people but the "hot dog" is too small, here is a solution:

@mommynana I started with 4 - 1/2 sheet cakes, 3 loaves, and 1 loaf that completely fell apart. I carved the shapes I wanted and actually ended up using the crumbles for shaping the round tops. it worked out really well.

I`d say it worked out great.

Whether you call it a hot dog, wiener, or bologna, it's a cooked sausage and a year-round favorite! Albeit, there is a hot dog war controversy, it is still the favorite of the populace! In fact, the food have become such a tradition that it would be impossible to find a city without corner vendors or sports event without them. Indeed, nothing can stop anyone from craving for hot dogs because now, there is already a hotdog cake. It's the first time I heard of that kind. I want to try it too!

I am well aware of the hot dog war lol. The cake was for my mother who LOVES hotdogs. We go to Chicago at least once a year to visit friends and all we eat are hotdogs. Its basically a hot dog tour with visiting friends in between. lol
