My dear daughter, T, had her 2nd birthday a few years ago now. Today I am going to share her cake that I made for her. The cake has a little of a back story to it.
When T was just over 1 we went on a spur of the moment trip to Disney Land. It was a chance to meet up with dear friends before they were posted overseas. Daughter T was just starting to talk. While sitting getting ready to order dinner with Auntie Tasha, Uncle Brian, Hubs, myself and 6 kiddos daughter T is patiently waiting amongst the mayhem. When the waiter was taking orders daughter T "orders" herself in a loud and proud voice "Cheeeesebuuuurger!". Apparently daughter T and Auntie Tasha had been practicing this word together. :) It definitely got all of our attention. So that is why for daughter Ts second birthday I made her a "Cheeeesebuuuurger Cake".
Here is the breakdown of this lovely cake!
There is no "recipe" for this cake. Mostly just directions.
Both the top and bottom buns are white cake mix cooked in two round cake pans. I used my from scratch recipe. You can use pre mix white cake from a box also... I will not judge.
The Burger Patty
The burger patty is my super easy chocolate brownie mix. I will share the recipe another day. Again you can use brownie mix in a box. No one will know.
For the pickle I used kiwi. The tomatoes are strawberries. The mustard is whip cream with yellow food coloring gel. You could do the same with ketchup too. I put real sesame seeds on the top "bun" but now I think that pumpkin seeds would be more to scale. :)
This was really fun to make. Fairly easy as well. You could use the same idea and make mini-burgers or slidders as a cupcake form too.
