Cheeseburger in Paradise

When my son’s school put out a request for silent auction items, or cakes for a raffle to raise money for the school I was debating for weeks as to what I should make.  What I finally decided to make was a “Cheeseburger in Paradise” cake, I hope that there is at least one reader that will get the parrot head reference.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBsPZV14I-k

A while back I made cupcake sliders which were the inspiration for this larger version.

Notes about the burger cake:

  • I used a devil’s food cake mix for the patty
  • Vanilla cake mix for the bun
  • Baked 3 cakes using a 8″ cake pan
  • Sprinkled the sesame seeds on the bun just before i took it out of the oven
  • Pickles, onions and cheese are all made of white fondant mixed with food colouring
  • Relish is coconut with green food colouring
  • Ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise are all icing with food colouring
