I used mixed ideas from different cakes on your website for a hamburger cake. I baked a yellow cake & divided it between a Pyrex bowl & an 8 inch round pan. I baked a chocolate cake in an 8 inch round pan & used the rest of the batter for cupcakes.
The yellow cake in the bowl was for the top bun & I frosted the top of it & the sides of the bottom bun in buttercream tinted with Wilton ivory. I frosted the top of the bottom bun with white buttercream that I slopped on there to look like mayo.
The chocolate cake (patty) was frosted with chocolate frosting that had crunched up cookies mixed in it to make it look jagged like meat. I tinted coconut green for the lettuce, used yellow fondant that I bought & cut it into triangles for the cheese. Then I bought Wilton's red & yellow gel icing in a tube for the ketchup & mustard.
Last of all, I piped little sesame seeds on the top of the bun with white buttercream. I served it on a metal beer tray that had a piece of parchment paper on it. The crowd went wild! It was yummy too, except for the fondant!
My grandson is two today and I wanted something he would be familiar with. I found this website and read the previous entries. My hamburger cake is similar, a homemade yellow cake cooked in a nine inch round pan, a second round cake that was made with about 2/3's of a brownie mix and the final bun part was made with about 2/3's of the yellow cake in a glass mixing bowl(the other third made the nine inch round).
I had almond paste on hand- mixed that with confectioners sugar and various food colorings. That made the lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and pickles. I lightened chocolate frosting with some vanilla to get the bun color and used the rice krispies for the sesame seeds.
The french fries were made from sugar cookie dough that I baked in a rectangle with precut markings. While it baked I cut threw the marks. I wanted to get that square fry shape and not have them spread out. I used a few nuts for the eyes, nose and eyebrows, marshmallow for the back of the eyes.
This Hamburger and Fries Birthday Cake was the first cake I made (besides the regular rectangle one layered cake) and it took me all day!
I used two round white cakes for the "buns" cutting the outer edges to avoid the cake crust and sprinkled rice krispies for the sesame seeds, one chocolate round cake for the meat covered with chocolate frosting, smushed green gumdrops for the pickle, smushed red gumdrops for the tomato, green dyed coconut for the lettuce, then made a square yellow cake then cut accordingly for the "fries".
The "ketchup" and "mustard" is icing. This cake was a lot of fun to make!
This was made of 3 cakes, two yellow cake 8" round for the buns & one chocolate cake 9" round for the burger. The natural rounded top on the cake made the perfect bun! Bottom 8" round leveled off and frosted, and placed 9" round on top of that frosted it dark chocolate for the beef color, then tinted some vanilla with yellow green & red used piping bag to make lettuce tomato & cheese. I placed rounded top 8" cake on top slightly off centered to show more burger. I used silvered almonds for the sesame seed look. This homemade hamburger cake was SO easy!
