~ Tomato slices ~ Place plain cookies on wire rack. Set over waxed
paper. Put 1/2 cup vanilla frosting in a sm saucepan on Lo heat 'till
warm. Remove from heat; stir in red food coloring (& a tiny bit of
yellow if needed). Use enough to make it 'tomato' colored. Frost
cookies; let stand until firm. ~ Mustard ~ Put 1/2 cup vanilla frosting
in sm bowl. Stir in yellow color until mustard colored. Cover to prevent
drying. ~ Eyes ~ Use a dot of vanilla frosting to 'glue' 2 M&M's to
marshmallows; set aside.
~ Lettuce ~ Sprinkle work surface with sugar. Using rolling pin, roll
out mint candy leaves until flattened; set aside.
~Bun ~ Put remaining vanilla frosting in a med bowl. Add milk chocolate
frosting. Add red & yellow food coloring a little at a time, until
frosting is color of a burger bun. Place 1 cake layer on serving plate.
Cover with frosting. Arrange "lettuce" on top & around edges. Place
remaining cake layer on waxed paper. Cover with chocolate fudge
frosting. Press crushed chocolate cookies into frosting to simulate a
burger patty texture. Using a pancake turner, lift "patty" onto
'lettuce'-lined bun. Spoon "mustard" about 1 " from edges, letting some
run down sides. Top with "tomato" slices. Trim hump (where cake has
risen) off bowl cake. Place trimmed side down on waxed paper; frost with
remaining bun colored frosting. Lift onto other layers. Glue "eyes" in
place with frosting.
This is really a great-looking cake and will be perfect for young
children on their birthdays or any day just for a special treat.
Prep Note: ~*It is best to use pound cake mixes called for because
regular cake mixes are too soft and tend to fall apart.
