England has actually got some sun, and it's been here for more than a week! This has resulted in being inundated with BBQ invites, and my traditional favourite burger cakes sprung to mind. This time however, I wanted to try something different. A monster sized burger cake.
The burger bun was a no-brainer... Victoria sandwich is a tasty classic but what better way to spruce it up than turn it into a burger bun?!
The miniature burgers are usually choc cinnamon biscuits, but there was no way that was going to up-size. After much deliberation it occurred to me that brownies are chocolatey and massive, and after a quick experiment (I'd never actually made a brownie before), it resulted in the perfect looking burger! At this point I was pretty confident that giant Burger Cake was actually going to be a success!
The salad and cheese is simply a larger version of my usual decorations, coloured and rolled sugarpaste, glued on with buttercream. It's actually much easier on such a large scale! Even the sesame seeds were easier to pipe larger with buttercream (usually need royal icing for the teensy ones).
So there it is, piece of cake! And I guess it's even vegetarian-friendly...
