BBQ Burger Cake

The finished product!

The finished product!

This was for my husbands birthday and we happened to be having a BBQ with friends and family. It was relatively easy to prepare, the longest part being baking the cakes and waiting for them to cool.
I have never used fondant, so I was a little concerned about that, but it proved to be very simple(except for the coloring of tomatoes, we didn't buy the gloves and it looked like I had slaughtered a pig!). We rolled the fondant out and for the lettuce, used the green food coloring paste by Wilton. I cut football shapes out of the piece we had rolled and used the blunt end of a steak knife to form the "leaf lettuce". For the tomatoes, I used a coffee cup and then cut out triangles. The pickles are the top of a sippy cup from my daughter and the onions are a coffee cup and then the sippy cup on the inside to make the smaller rings.
I am one of those people that will use every resource without spending a ton of money!
The cakes, I did 2 Vanilla-the buns
The middle one is chocolate, for the "meat" part, to make it look more realistic, I spread chocolate frosting around the edges and then rolled it in chocolate sprinkles, that gave it the texture I was looking for.
The icing for the buns is chocolate frosting mixed with white. Be careful not to put too much chocolate frosting in.
The top part for the sesame seeds, I found toffee crunch bits, and they worked perfect!

Coolest Cheeseburger Cake 122

I was just beginning to play with fondant and I wanted to make a cake that would make people question if it was really a cake. This 3 level cake, contains 2 vanilla 10" rounds and 1 brownie 10" round. Each layer between fondant is filled with homemade butter cream icing. All of my fondant is Duff Butter cream White, which is all tinted by me with the preparation of the cake.

This Cheeseburger Cake was the very first fondant cake I had ever made, took me approximately 10 hours as I had never worked with fondant or gel colorants before. I was thrilled with the success of this cake and how real it looked. This cake was made in May 2012.

This Cheese Burger cake was made for a very good friend of mine, who had recently had a holiday, gained lots of weight, after consuming copious amounts of cheese burgers and fries!!!

I thought it would be a bit of a joke to present her with this cake shortly after her return. It certainly was 2 years on and she is still laughing about it.

For this Cheeseburger Cake I used yellow cake mix for the "buns" and chocolate cake for the "burger". The onions, tomatoes, pickles and cheese are fondant, the fries are gumpaste with fondant "ketchup" on top.

I used homemade peanut butter icing on the buns with real sesame seeds on top of bun.
