Instructions for Creating a Hamburger Shaped Cake

Items Needed:

  • 3 Round Cake Pans
  • 3 Boxes of Cake Mix
  • Yellow Food Coloring
  • Brown Food Coloring
  • Red Fondant
  • Yellow Fondant
  • Green Fondant
  • 3 White Icing
  • Cake Tray

Step 1: Bake the cake mix in each of the round pans and allow to cool.

Step 2: Once cooled, cut the top section off of two of the cakes so that the tops are flat. These pieces will serve as the bottom bun of the hamburger and the beef on the burger.

Step 3: Combine one container of white icing with the yellow food coloring.

Step 4: Place the bottom cake on the cake tray and ice it with the yellow icing that you have created. If the icing is too yellow, add a touch of brown food coloring to get it as close to the color of a hamburger bun as possible.

Step 5: Next, place the next cake on top of the bottom cake. You should combine white icing with the brown food coloring in order to make the meat look realistic.

Step 6: Next, take a piece of yellow fondant and cut it into a square to look like cheese. Then, place it on the cake section that represents the beef.

Step 7: Next, take the green fondant and cut out green circles. These will represent the pickles. Place them in random locations, close to the outside region of the cake.

Step 8: Now, take the red fondant and cut out larger circles. These will represent the tomato slices on the cake.

Step 9: Now, roll out the green fondant until it is really thin. Then, crumple it a bit and place it on the cake so that it looks like lettuce.

Step 10: The final step is to place the last cake on top of the items that you have created and to ice it with the same colored icing that you used for the cake that represents the bottom bun. Then, you will have created your hamburger cake.
