Need Help to make edible McDonald's Spicy Chicken Sandwich and a cup of iced tea

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello. I have to make a cake in March with  2 McDonald's Spicy Chicken Sandwich's plain and a glass of iced tea for a cake. I have done some searchs and have not found anything on making spicy Chicken Sandwich or a glass of iced tea. They want it to look like what you would buy in a McDonald's store. I am sure the bun of the sandwich's and the cup for the tea will not be to much of a problem for me. The problem is how to get the spicy chicken for the sandwich and the ice and the tea. So any help will be grateful. Thanks

the tea and ice are usually under a lid so i don't know how they would peel the lid off to even reveal the ice & the tea--but you could make a tea jelly and use big sugar crystals for the ice or pour some cooked sugar and then bust it up to make 'ice'

 

the chicken is it grilled or breaded & fried?

 

i would just start messing around with some fondant or american buttercream and whatever i thought  would mimic that surface--use some texturing--get some peaceful quiet time-let your brain and fingers fly

 

***i would buy the sandwich and tea to have a pattern to go by***

I'd look up hamburger cakes and tweak colors and textures from there.

The chicken is breaded and fried. I have looked at the pictures online and it looks like it has a red tint and black pepper flakes.

 

Thanks for the idea's that sounds like a great idea. I did think about buying them and taking pictures and see what I could work out from that point. Thanks again hope you both have a great day!!!!

i'm not looking at the fried chicken just going from memory

 

these are just maybe/maybe not options for that crunchy looking texture:

 

  • wonder what potato flakes from instant mashed potatoes might do for texture

 

  • or panko--prolly too fine

 

  • or oatmeal! you could cut it the size you want on the cutting board or in a food processor maybe??

 

  • coconut takes color great

 

  • a few rice krispies tossed in?

 

  • crumpled aluminum foil to use as an impression?

 

  • if store bought edible glitter falls on a moist enough surface it melts in and looks polka dot-y in a weird way that might be used for the variance in texture and shading of a fried food

 

hope you might get to post a picture

 

best of the best to you

I don't know but I would so go to McDonalds and get some unused wrappers from them to put the sandwich on and use a brown tray with a placemat from there as a cake board...that would look so great!
