Stylish Burger Cake (Husband's Birthday!)

 
My husband is a huge lover of burgers in all their forms - chicken, beef, double, supreme, fast food, gourmet - you name it!  So when I saw the link for this burger cake I knew it was the perfect birthday cake to make for him.
 
 
This is one of the easiest burger cakes to make, as its not like other tutorials where you have to cover the cake in fondant to get the burger 'look'. I followed the link at Craftsy exactly. Simply bake three cake layers - two vanilla for the burger buns, and one chocolate for the beef layer. Mix together four different frosting colours to achieve your mayo, ketchup, lettuce and mustard, and pipe them onto your cake using four different tips. For a cute final touch, make a couple of fries and soda drink toppers to go on top.

 
I had a few mishaps with the frosting, as once I had piped the different layers I had parts of frosting fall off due to the heaviness, so make sure to pipe your layers much more closer to the centre of  the cake itself to avoid this from happening. Still I love how my cake turned out, and I'm even more pleased that my husband loved it!
 
 
Ramadan, the holy fasting month for Muslims all over the world, is starting tomorrow, so my posts may be a little slow. In the meantime, a Happy Ramadan to all those who will be fasting and I hope to have a special post for Eid day!

  7. Ramadan Kareem!I just saw your post over at the Sugar & Slice Sunday Link Party. I adore your cake - the toppers that you made sort of make the cake even cuter (if that's possible). My four-year-old daughter gets a kick out of sweets made to look like savor foods. Her birthday is coming up right after Eid, and this cake may just make its way to our dinner table on her special day. Thanks for the cute idea!

  10. I'm assuming Ramadan is still happening now? I came to your blog to check for new posts, but came to this older one instead because it was too adorable to forego. What a lucky husband you have!
