Is It Dinner or Dessert? by theshaggyturtle Is It Dinner or Dessert? by theshaggyturtle
I took this picture with an artistic frame of mind, not for the sake of the cakes, but just because I thought it would be cool to make a comparison to cake vs. actual burger.

The hamburger cake is not my idea, I just mass produce them for the company I work for. While I was making them I was thinking about how the people that make burgers at McDonald's and Burger King must feel! :D

The cake is layered as follows: 7" yellow cake frosted with chocolate buttercream; halved chocolate 7" cake with grass tip for lettuce and #4 round tip for condiments; 7" yellow cake with beveled top frosted with chocolate buttercream with graham cracker crumbs on top to resemble sesame seeds. Fries are yellow cake cut into strips with red buttercream for ketchup.

I've been wanting to make something like this, but I'd want it to fool someone into really thinking it was a burger until they realized they were eating chocolatey goodness.

But they look delisch. I can't believe something like this comes from a regular ol' supermarket. Even if its a mass-manufactured dessert, it pretty cool that they don't stop at just regular style birthday cakes.

That would be a fun trick to play on someone! :giggle: These 'feature' cakes we do that aren't 'regular' birthday cakes are the most fun to make. And it's so great to see people get excited over them as much as I do! Thanks!

It looks very much like a real burger...

and for this reason my stomache twists when i look at it...

a burger flavoured cake would make me yarp like none other =P

its bad enough that it resembles a burger.

Tell your boss that he has violated the sacred meat//cake boundary

or tell him "your sand is coming,"

because his sand is definately en-route.

I'll be sure to mention the sand! ;)
