If I had a fast food restaurant, this would be the #1 Combo at the drive-thru.
I spent so long working on this and I am ridiculously proud of it, even if it isn't super refined. The cake buns are made of vanilla cake, frosted with buttercream, topped with more ketchup "frosting." The burger patty is made of a cake truffle mixture - chocolate cake mooshed with chocolate frosting until it was moldable into a rounded-edge circle. The "cheese" is a fondant-ish mixture that I completely made up. The top of the cake is sprinkled with white chocolate "sesame seeds."
My hands were stained so yellow from kneading the food coloring into that cheese.
The French fries (chips, pommes frites
, patatas fritas
- ooh, I'm so international) are made with my mom's recipe for sugar cookies, which I have found make the best sugar cookies for decorating ever.
So, here's your #1 Combo, milkshake coming right up, your total is $0.00, and please come back soon!
