Hamburger Cake and Fries

I made this hamburger cake for my son's Birthday.
I started by making a round yellow cake. I was making cupcakes so I didn't want a large cake. This is a six inch pan.

After the cake cooled I cut of the top and bottom and ate the center. :)

Next I made a milk chocolate cake in the six inch pan. I cut the top and bottom off and saved the center for the burger.

I made some yellow MMF and cut it in a square for the cheese. I then made some buttercream frosting and colored some red and some green. I then put it in a sandwich bag and cut the corner off. I then added some red for the catsup and green for some lettuce. Add the top, sprinkle with sesame seeds and you've got yourself a hamburger cake!

For the fries I made sugar cookie dough.

I rolled it out and cut out long strips. I then sprinkled them with sugar before and after baking.

I also made mini hamburgers out of cupcakes the same as I made the cake.

The kids loved them!

She didn't want it at first but the minute she bit into it and it was sweet she couldn't get enough!


  1. This is amazing!! If I was a kid I would seriously LOVE this, heck I'm not a kid and I love it now!! Making a mental note of this for when I become a mom in the future or maybe just a project to do for fun now :)
