Cheese Burger and French Fries (Not) Cake is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from When I first came across this, I instantly knew I had to make it for my brother's birthday. Now, we have the typical brother-sister rivalry, but when he saw this cake he hugged me. I'm taking that as I did an excellent job, haha. This wasnt complicated at all to create. I did, however, substitute the brownie part of it for a basic layer of chocolate cake. I will definitely be making this as it starts to warm up and outside events start to happen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A 'Cheese Burger' Cake is always a hit for a BBQ, especially when the picnic if for a team or will include the Family Reunion Game! This cake takes more time than one would think, because the prep time is where the time adds up. So, plan on gathering all your colors and mixing up the different trim and icing colors ahead of time; bright, vivid colors usually take me longer to get right, especially when the finished look is already a given and the colors really have to be spot on. And, I've found that, when I,m frosting the bun, if I clean my spatula and even leave a few drops of water on the spatula, it helps me smooth icing when I want that really perfect, finished look from my frosting on my smooth finished bun. Planning enough assembly time will also make sure you have as much fun making this cake, as you do delivering and cutting into it, to serve it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addorable cake for someone who works at McDonalds. I iced the " bun " with tinted buttercream and made a McFlurry with 2 cupcakes inside and buttercream mixed with crunched M&M's on top. It was a hit & easy to do. McD's supplied the french fry box & McFl cup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made this several time, except for the fries. Everybody loves this and it's so much fun to make. The kids especially really enjoy eating this, they like it when the inside has 'ketchup' and 'mustard' 'onions', and 'lettuce' and 'pickles'.
