Last year my mom got me a subscription to Food Network Magazine. It has been a fun mag to have in the house. This month one of the main recipes was a Cheeseburger cake. Munchkin saw it and had to have it for her birthday. Now, I have to admit I have become a bit of a snob when it comes to using box mixes and the recipe called for 2. Instead of following the recipe (which can be found here)
I made 2 round chocolate cakes from my Hershey cookbook and this strawberry cake. Munchkin requested the top be strawberry and the meat patty and bottom bun be chocolate. The most time consuming part of this cake was the baking of the cakes.
Doesn't the cheese look fantastic! This was Angela's first time working with it and she did a fabulous job!!
The meat patty was left bigger than the bottom bun on purpose as we all like big burgers!
This was a fun cake to put together and I am looking forward to the next one! :)
