How To Make A Burger Cake With Lyla and Byrdie

I’m in New York babysitting the grand kids and I wanted to make the burger cake with them.  First, remember there’s no right or wrong way on how to make a burger cake.  The girls didn’t want poppy seeds for the topping and hated the idea of whipped topping.  So, I made adjustments for my two chefs.  I used sprinkles for the top of the burger instead of the poppyseeds and we used food coloring to make a yellow buttercream icing instead of using whipped topping.  Actually, the recipe was even easier and everyone was happy!

I used a small amount of yellow icing for the mustard to hold the strawberries and kiwi in place!  Everyone LOVED the new recipe, including me.

Had to Share My Favorite KitchenAid Mixer (BEST MIXER TO BUY) Story from My Daughter

I have a funny Kitchen Aid story.  I have had my big Kitchen Aid mixer for years and I think they are the best around. Even if you prefer a hand mixer, your money is well spent with a Kitchen Aid.  My daughters growing up thought that you called a mixer “kitchen aid” just like you call a tissue “Kleenex”  I didn’t realize it until Haley came home from a friend’s house one day in astonishment saying they didn’t have a “Kitchen Aid” and just a hand mixer.  Of course, I had the big mixer but not everyone cooks as much as I do!
