First, bake three circle cakes, two plain and one chocolate for the beef patty of the hamburger cake.
Using Vienna icing, make some light brown for the bun, dark brown for the beef patty and yellow for the cheese. Ice the bottom layer of the cake, then use thick green lollies to make a layer of lettuce on top. Then ice the beef patty and place it on top of the lettuce, use some icing in between the layers to stick them together.
Then use assorted lollies on top of this layer to represent the tomato, onion and pickles and use a layer of yellow icing for cheese. Ice the top layer and place it on top, sprinkle with silver cachous to represent seeds.
Place a skewer with a flag in the top and place on a fast food tray with other fast food items as shown.
For this hamburger cake we just used two yellow 9'' round cakes and one more out of devil's food cake. We frosted the bottom "bun" with frosting that we food colored to make bun-colored.
To get that bun color, we used some red, a lot of yellow, and just a drop or two of green. We then frosted the "meat" with chocolate frosting and placed it on top of the bottom bun. We just used red and green frosting for the lettuce and ketchup.
For the lettuce I used a decorating tip to give it texture. We then frosted the top "bun" and placed it on the very top. Finally, for the "sesame seeds" we used sliced almonds for a deliciously good crunch.
It looked awesome and it was also super fun to make! I suggest this cake for anyone who wants to have an awesome time!
This cake was made for my son and nephew's birthday last year. I used three 9 inch round cakes. The bottom cake is frosted with a tinted butter cream, (there is butter cream between each layer). Middle layer is a chocolate cake with butter cream icing that I added crumbled Oreo cookies in to make it have the burger texture. The lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese are fondant as well as the sesame seeds and olives. The top layer was a vanilla cake that I over filled the pan so it would have more a dome look, butter cream crumb coat then tinted fondant cover. The cake weighted close to 25lbs with all the butter cream and fondant.
Everyone loved it and could not believe that I started it in NC and transported it to WVa before I finished it up.
My cousin, being twelve, asked for a hamburger cake for her birthday after seeing a picture of one in an old decorating book. So we obliged her, making this monstrous cake (had to feed enough for twenty 12 year old girls)!
The 'bun' is two french vanilla 12' rounds, the 'burger' is a chocolate cake without icing. All the veggies are made of marshmallow fondant, the condiments out of get and tinted to look like mustard and ketchup.
For extra effect, I made french fries and onion rings out of fondant and used as border. I dribbled the 'ketchup'.
I made 1 yellow box cake for the buns and 1 chocolate box cake for the meat of the hamburger cake.
I used fondant for the cheese, tomatoes, onions, sesame seeds and french fries. And for the lettuce I used canned icing (I thickened it with powdered sugar because it was too thin once I added the food coloring).
