Prepare the following icing colors:
Step 2: Using the light brown royal icing, outline and flood the top and bottom "bun" sections as shown in the photo. Let these sections dry for 10-20 minutes until crusted over.
Step 3: Using the pinkish-brown thick flood consistency royal icing, pipe the "hot dog" section. First, outline with piping consistency royal icing. Then, fill with flood consistency royal icing, moving the icing around with a toothpick or scribe to ensure full coverage and to eliminate any air bubbles. Let this section dry for 10-20 minutes until crusted over.
Step 4: Using the yellow outline royal icing consistency, pipe the "mustard" as shown in the photo. Let this icing dry for 10-20 minutes.
Step 5: Using the red outline royal icing consistency, pipe the "ketchup" in an alternating pattern to the yellow icing, as shown in the photo.
