Some people don't like cake, at least traditional cakes, and that's where the Grilled Cheese Cake comes in. For those who have a particular affinity for grilled cheese sandwiches, this is the cake for them. In place of moist chocolate and fluffy icing, the Grilled Cheese Cake is full of browned bread, butter and, of course, a ton of cheese.
Created by the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen, the Grilled Cheese Cake takes on a roughly cylindrical shape that is made up of layers of sandwiches and decorated what looks like rosettes of Cheez Whiz. $100 for the stacked 24-sandwich creation, it is made using sharp cheddar and Monterey jack on sourdough bread with cheddar cheese frosting.
