Hi everyone,

I'm making a burger cake and was wondering what's the best/efficient way to make sesame seeds for the bun? Other than real sesames?

Thanks for any help icon_biggrin.gif

I've seen them made out of fondant by hand, but that seems like it would be a lot of work and time. icon_sad.gif

Thank-you for the suggestions. It's going to be time consuming but I think I'm going to make them out of fondant, I think it'll look better since the cake is going to be covered in fondant.

But if others have any other ideas they are more than welcome to respond.

Thanks again!

When I did mine, I rolled a rope of fondant in the diameter that I wanted my sesame seeds and flattened it a bit, then cut it in slices with a pair of scissors. Then I just smooshed them with a finger and gave them a bit of sideways pressure as I smooshed them. That gave them the more oval shape of a real sesame seed. On some of them I had to pinch one end a bit to give them the point.

(And, yes, I do consider "smooshed" to be a highly technical term, but I don't intend to trademark it, lol.)

I used real ones when I made some burger cupcakes.

I had considered that, but they were just too tiny on an eight inch cake. If I ever do cuppie burgers, I'd definitely go for the real thing.
