Be prepared! This Homemade Sliders Burger Cake Design is time-consuming! Still here? Good luck! Sliders are cake mix and brownies. "Fries"- I will explain later what these are. "Onion rings" are glazed sour-dough doughnuts from Jewel.
The cake was basic store bought white cake (yellow is best for the way it turns golden brown on top and white on the inside) baked in large muffin pan (I believe it is the Wilton pan with 6 or 9 muffins that are about 3-4" round), fill about half-way. Brownies are baked in same size pan, only fill about 1-2" up. Once cake and brownies are completed, cooled, and popped out of pan; they will need to be trimmed on each side to form a square(do not throw away sides) and cakes cut in half to form tops and bottoms like buns.
If you would like toppings: these were "classics" with "onions" and "pickles"(sugar drops rolled out and cut to mimmick counter-parts)or "cheese"(fruit roll-up cut to fit)but you could do just about anything just use your imagination and think about foods that taste good and would mimmick. Next, all you have to do is assemble and stack in pyramid. The "fries" are easy-peasy, these are the trimmed off edges form the cakes, place into any restaurant-type container and include "ketchup"(red-dyed icing-yum). For "onion-rings", slice each doughnut in half again like the "buns" and then cut out circles, place in another container.
For my birthday boy, I basically set him a plate and wrote my greeting there. Please comment if you have any questions.
Here it is! An awesome 9in. Hamburger Cake Design. Think you could handle it?
This is what happens when the self taught cake decorator asks her friend "What should I bring to the church picnic?"
I started with 2 8in cakes (pans should be greased and floured for easy cake removal). Have icing colors mixed in 5 colors, red-ketchup, yellow-mustard, white-for mayo, light brown for bun, then add more brown to left over icing to make dark brown for meat patties.
For the sesame seeds, lettuce, tomato and cheese I used fondant cut out to proper shape (leave a little over hang on back of veggie for tucking into cake layers). This shows more detail.
Begin by leveling one layer of cake and leaving the other domed. This one will be the top bun. Put extra icing between both layers and stack. Ice the entire outside of the cake with the light brown icing.
Ice two meat patties all the way around the cake. Make it thick and somewhat bumpy. Next add the fondant veggies. You want the fondant to be somewhat dried but too much that you can't still mold it a little. Place these pieces between layers.
Now with red, yellow and white in pipe bags with #3 tip, add ketchup, mustard and mayo to fill gaps. Last add fondant sesame seeds to top. For extra detail I rolled green fondant to look like a pickle. Enjoy!
Be creative. Add onions. Fries on the side. Possibilities are endless. Have them talking at your next cookout.
