Until recently, I was not much of a fan of homemade hamburgers. I think my dad always made them too thick for me. And I don’t think I ever ordered a hamburger at a restaurant. But now, I see the Red Robin commercials and my mouth starts to water. I go all Jimmy Buffett and can’t stop thinking about cheeseburgers until I finally get one. And then I’m in paradise.
These little guys won’t satisfy that craving for a huge chunk of meat, and surprisingly they are vegetarian friendly! I proudly served these hamburgers at our Super Bowl Party. I was looking for a good football dessert when I found a picture of dessert hamburgers. I owe her TONS because she is how I found Bakerella. I sent the hubs an e-mail with the link to Crave. Indulge. Satisfy. saying that I wanted to make a dessert for the party, and what about these. He totally did not think that I was going to make them! Can you believe that?
Contents: vanilla cupcake buns, brownie patty, royal icing lettuce, ketchup and mustard. Sesame seeds. Some people make the lettuce with coconut, ew! I do believe the hubs said they were the greatest thing, ever. But he tends to say that about every new dessert I make for him.
My mom and dad made a few giant cheeseburger cakes. Once for a birthday, and once for an OM competition. And maybe more. I might not have even remembered those if my mom hadn’t mentioned OM cakes the other day while we were discussing a potential wedding job.
If you ever have the occasion to make these burgers, do it. They make a big splash. And are just too cute! What other main course items would make cute desserts?
