With Labor Day weekend in full swing, you're likely heading outdoors to grill up an alfresco dinner. For dessert, look no further than the grill yet again — well, kind of. This week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week is a cake that looks just like a grill, but features sweet-treat toppings and a chocolate cake base. Hot dogs made from taffy, kebabs made from candy fruits, and corn made from sponge cake and jelly beans — it's all here. The base of the cake is made using a simple boxed chocolate cake mix, and charred marshmallows and red candies are layered upon the cake to create the “coals.” Place a round cooling rack over the coals as a grate, and top it with the "grilled foods" to complete the scene.
