Original recipe yields 20 servings

Directions

  1. Preheat oven according to instructions on cake mix box; prepare mix. Grease and flour a 9 inch pan, and a shallow metal bowl at least 9 inches in diameter. Fill the 9 inch cake pan 2/3 full with cake batter; pour the remaining batter into the prepared metal bowl (this will be the top of your "bun"). Bake according to directions, remove from pans, and cool on a wire rack.
  2. Grease and flour a 9 inch pan. Prepare brownie batter, and bake according to instructions on box. Remove from pan, and cool on a wire rack. Shave off the sharp edges of the brownie, making it resemble a hamburger patty.
  3. Place 1/4 cups of vanilla frosting in a heavy duty plastic sandwich bag, and color with yellow food coloring to make your mustard. Repeat a second time using the red food coloring to make your ketchup. Place remaining frosting in a bowl, and color with a mix of red and yellow food coloring until you arrive at the color of a hamburger bun.
  4. Cut the cookies in half and wrap with pieces of red fruit leather to create your tomatoes. Unwrap the caramels, and heat in microwave for 10 to 15 seconds to slightly soften. Roll the caramels individually between sheets of waxed paper to create bacon strips. Microwave the chewy fruit-flavored candy squares, place together, and roll between sheets of waxed paper to create your cheese slice; trim into a square shape.
  5. To assemble, place bottom bun on your serving dish, and spread with some of the hamburger bun frosting. Place brownie on top of this, and spread it with chocolate frosting. Decorate edges with the tomatoes, bacon, cheese, mustard, and ketchup; use the green fruit leather as lettuce. Place top bun over this and spread with the remaining hamburger bun frosting; sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Thanks for the clever idea, Krystle! Instead of candies, I used frosting for decoration (thick mixture patted into shapes of cheese, tomatoes, and pickles). And no frosting on the cake layers, since they look like a burger without. Though I modified the recipe, the idea gets five stars. The kids and adults loved it!

This cake was a HIT with six year olds. The only problem that I ran into was when I was cutting into the cake with the candy tomatoes, lettuce and cheese (fruit roll-ups and Starbursts). You might want to either use a thick frosting or remove the insides before cutting. Another thing I discovered...when I baked the brownie I wanted it to be a bit smaller then the bun, so I cut the edge off first. This really made it look like ground beef. I will make this again, it was easier then I thought.

What an adorable idea! I made this cake for a school function where the children got to select cakes as prizes. Not only did I receive many compliments as I carried the cake down the hallway, but it was also one of the first ones chosen! I can't vouch for how it tastes since I didn't eat it, but it was very easy to make. I simplified the recipe by omitting the "bacon," wrapping whole vanilla wafers (instead of halves) in fruit leather, using yellow fruit leather for the "cheese," instead of fruit-flavored candy, and using yellow and red decorator icing for the "mustard" and "ketchup." I also cut the green fruit leather in strips to look like shredded lettuce. By the way, my local grocery store sells boxes of fruit leather in primary colors, but they have "tongue tattoos" on them. I felt that the tattoos weren't that noticeable and were pretty easy to hide under the bun.
