Hamburgers x2

Todd said goodbye to his twenties today, and joined the thirties club.  I've seen people really stress about this birthday, but it just didn't seem like that big of a deal.  After all, it's just another day older, right?  I guess we'll see if I still feel that way in a few more months when I turn 30.  We will just keep on taking life one day at a time, and enjoying it as much as we can.  Thirty?  Bring it on!!

I was trying to come up with something fun to do for Todd's birthday cake, and was coming up empty.  He doesn't really have any "Favorite" things, so I couldn't really mold the cake around anything like that.  I had almost decided on a plain white cake with frosting and a few sprinkles, but then I ran across this idea.  

I was on my brothers family blog, and my sister in law had made the cutest desert for an upcoming BBQ.  They were going to have hamburgers for dinner, just like we did tonight.  She had been put in charge of dessert, and decided to make hamburgers too.  (She actually got it from Thanks for the idea Amanda!

So we BBQ'd hamburgers tonight for dinner.  Then I brought out the second round of burgers:  

It was so much fun to eat these.  It's a cupcake, cut in half, with a brownie for the burger.  Frosting makes up the ketchup, mustard and lettuce.  The french fries are sugar cookies, with fry sauce frosting.  It was great!  To all those creative minds out there, keep up the good work.  And thanks for sharing  your ideas with the rest of us.

 Happy Birthday Todd!

I love them!!! I thought they sounded cute when you were telling me about them, but they look so realistic I didn't think that they would be. You are amazing. I'll show them to Kelli so she can make them for my birthday:)

You did a good job. I like the fry holders. A lot more detail than I wanted to do.
