Two occasions this weekend: it was zombie film night last night, and it’s a friend’s birthday today. We needed manly man cakes! :)
I have this really cute little baking tin which makes a tiny round cake for two people or four people who want really small slices (or one me!) :) – and the other day a very sizeist (!) person mistook one of those cute little cakes for a hamburger. Grrrr.
On the plus side, this incident inspired me to make burger cakes.
The buns are regular light sponge cakes with some sesame seeds sprinkled on top. For the meat burgers, I baked smaller cocoa sponges and covered them with a mixture of melted dark and hazelnut chocolates.
Marzipan (and some food colouring) was used for the cheese slices. Then I cut up some jelly sweets for the salad/cucumbers and tomatoes. Finally, I made some white chocolate ganache, coloured it with food colouring, and thus it became mustard.
I am very much in love with the result, I must admit. May have to make them again some time!
