Hi!! I want to make to hamburger cake. I know it's 3 layers 2 for buns and 1 for meat, but does each cake have it's own board or are they just on top of each other like a regular layer cake? I will be using fondant to cover each.. This may sound very silly but for some reason I can't figure it out..lol.. Any help or advice on how to make this would be greatly appreciated..Thank so much
The general rule of thumb is you need board/supports for every 4 inches of cake. If you are making a very small burger, you might not need one. Larger one will. If I was doing one, I would probably make one layer for the bun, one layer for the burger, then board, then a round pan for the top bun.
HI: I made one recently and I used yellow cake for the buns and chocolate cake for the "burger" with choc. buttercream icing. Good luck to you.
I used unfrosted thin brownies for my MEAT...pulled them from the oven and lightly squished them to give an uneven edge. I did not use cardboard separators and they were just fine. I used BC frosting and fondant for the tomatoes, lettuce, pickles and sesame seeds for the bun.
I did the same as bsbqueenb... no cardboard. It worked well.
Hi! I have done a few in the past. I bake one of the layers in a bowl for the upper bun, and one in an 8" round for the bottom of the bun. I bake a brownie in an 8" pan for the burger. No supports required, it is actually a very stable cake. The brownie seems to make it so.
I didn't use boards either, mine was a 6inch cake it was the top of a cupcake tower... I have to say it was a fun cake to make everyone loved it at the BBQ... I made the "meat" like a cakeball out of chocolate cake & buttercream, I was concerned it would not hold up but it was fine.
thank you all so much, I think I'm on the right track now ....
