Steak cake and bacon cookies

For a cookout billed as "Because meat is tasty," I decided to have some fun making desserts that look like meat. The bacon cookies are based on the excellent instructions from Eleventy. The cake (which my friend says I should call "beefcake") is my own idea, although I found a lot of pictures of other steak cakes online. It's basically a red velvet cake with red and white icing, strategically piped and smoothed into position using a spatula and a small paintbrush.

Hahaha, nice marbling on your steak! Though, I do find it a bit odd that it's of a raw steak.

When I first read the title, I was expecting cake with bacon in it.

Nice job, Amy!
