Chilly Fast Food Desserts

These Cake French Fries and Ice Cream Hot Dogs are Perfect for Summer

— July 21, 2014 — Lifestyle
If you want to serve your guests some misleadingly sweet fast food dessert items, these cake fries and chocolate ice cream hot dogs are the way to do it.

To make these adorable hot dogs and fries confectionaries begin by baking a loaf of vanilla cake. Once the cake is baked slice the loaf up into skinny rectangles, cover the pieces with melted butter and re-bake them until the cake pieces are golden brown. This will recreate the look of crunchy golden fries. To make the hot dogs begin by slicing up a block of chocolate ice cream into tiny rectangles. Roll each ice cream rectangle in plastic wrap so that the ice cream can harden into a cylinder-like shape. Then bake oval cake buns to replicate the look of savory bread buns. Top the chocolate ice cream hot dog off with yellow and red icing to replicate the look of mustard and ketchup.
