My mom mentioned that she saw a cool cake at a local grocery store bakery that looked like a burger. For her birthday, I managed to find some simple ideas online (love google image search!) and built her a cheese burger cake. Using a basic buttercream icing tinted with dutch process cocoa to coat the vanilla cake for the bun with pine nuts for sesame seeds, various gel dyes to tint icing into ketchup and lettuce colors, rolled out fruit jellies for tomatoes, and dyed marzipan rolled out and cut into "cheese slices," and a brownie "burger," the cake turned out great. It was huge and barely fit in my cake carrier, but it was enjoyed by all.
I finally finished Harry Potter #6 and started #7. I need to finish 7 before the baby arrives!
