Hamburger Cake

Is this the ultimate vegetarian hamburger?

Is this the ultimate vegetarian hamburger?

I made this Hamburger Cake for my husbands birthday. I wanted a cake that looked nothing like a cake. It was very fun to make and not very hard.
The top and bottom bun are each an 8" Yellow cake, with the bottom cut off of the top bun for the fries. I poured the batter a little uneven, giving more for the top bun.

The hamburger patty is a brownie cooked in an 8" round pan. I left the brownie as it was with chocolate frosting to hold the layers together.

The tomato, cheese, bacon and lettuce were all made ahead of time using fondant. The bun and seeds are also fondant. I used chocolate buttercream to hold the fondant on.

For the mustard and ketchup on my Hamburger Cake I used store bought frosting. The fries are the part of the top bun that was cut off in the beginning. I cut them crinkly with a pastry wheel.

clarification on the hamburger bun
by: lynne

Your hamburger cake is really very nice. I just want to clarify if you made the top and bottom part from the same 8" cake. Also, were these covered in fondant? I hope you can post pictures (step by step) on how you made this fantastic cake. The fries look real, can you post a larger picture? Thank you in advance :0D
