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 bakerella.blogspot.com) 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!
