He's how old???

Happy 5th Birthday Connor! It's that time again!! Connor is 5, and although he's NEVER eaten a hamburger,

when he saw a hamburger cake in a book he said "Mimi make this one when I'm 5." I am always up for a challenge, so I jumped at the chance!

I didn't want to poke things in the top of the " bun" so I created a large fries and drink ( to round out the meal ) and also to put the birthday boy's info out there. I've always wanted to try fondant and found this recipe for marshmallow fondant that was really easy to make.

http://chiccookiekits.blogspot.com/2010/03/finallyhomemade-marshmallow-fondant-and.html The lettuce,onions,cheese,and sesame seeds are all fondant. The buns are Carmel cake frosted in carmel frosting and the burger is dark fudge chocolate cake un frosted. My hubby thought it would look more real. I think he was right!

I thought I'd take pics as I put it together.

That didn't work too well. Yes that is a hairdryer you see!

Havn't you ever seen the cake boss?

(he uses heat ...or is it steam?) I think it's steam duh...oh well I was trying to make the fondant shinny. DO NOT use a hair dryer unless you want to melt the frosting!

As you can see Connor loved the cake.

Can't wait to see what he picks for next year!
