Ok, I still consider myself very much a NEWBIE to decorating. Or should I say amateur. But I have admired so many of the Burger cakes I have seen on here. Never thought I could do one to do justice to anything I have seen but I have to admit I am pretty darn proud of how this turned out.

Bun is cake, covered in buttercream. Seasame seeds are fondant as well as the veggies and cheese. Pickle and tomato have piping gel on them for the wet look. Mustard is buttercream, meat is RKT covered in dark chocolate.

Thanks for looking....just wanted to share.

I don't know about the amatuer part. Your cake looks really good. If, I ever have to do a burger cake I hope it is as good as yours. I have to figure out how to do an oreo cake for my son.

I didn't use a tutorial. I just picked a picture on CC I liked and tried to go by it as much as I could. I baked 2 10 in cake and let them cool. Normally I would freeze them but didn't this time. I do recommend doing that though. It would make it much easier to ice.

The veggies I just hand molded out of colored fondant. I cut an imprint of where I wanted the tomato "meat" to be and then pressed it in with my fingers. I made little seeds out of white fondant and then filled in the area with piping gel and the seeds to give it the wet look.

The lettuce was just krinkled up light green fondant and I painted it with leaf green gel mixed with vanilla.

Pickle was the green fondant and just made ridges in it with the end of a paint brush on each side. Then I painted the edges dark green and piping gelled the top.

The burger was the fun part. I made rice krispie treats and when it cooled a little I made it in the burger shape. Melted semi sweet dark chocolate and spread it all over it.

The bun is just covered in buttercream (Tonednas recipe) and smoothed with Viva method.

It wasn't hard at all. I figured trying to carve the top was going to be hard but it wasn't perfect when I carved it at all but once you frost it you can't see any of the flaws.

Thanks for the compliments.

These are super fun to make, and I agree that they are easier than you would anticipate. I am a true newbie and yours is far more awesome than mine.

It really looks real!
