Cool Homemade Hamburger Cake With Fondant Lettuce

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.
