Usually Taylor works with our boys for the Scout Blue & Gold Banquet. This year Taylor didn't have much time, so I decided to help Noah out.
The theme this year was America ABC's. As we brainstormed, some crazy ideas came up. However, once someone mentioned the cheeseburger, we knew that was it. What's more American than the cheeseburger?
The lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and buns were made from marshmallow fondant. I've never tried to make fondant before, so I thought it was going to be a beast. It actually was less trouble that I thought. I highly suggest marshmallow fondant to anyone wanting to attempt to try fondant for the first time. Not only is it not very difficult to make, but it tastes better too.
The buns were made of yellow cake and the burger was chocolate cake. The sesame seeds were rice krispies, and we coated the burger with cookie crumbs to make it look more real.
Decorating the cake with "condiments".

His cake won "Judge's Favorite". When one of the leaders described which cake they chose, he said this particular cake "brought a tear too his eye". Definitely a man for you there. I had one kid ask me if the cake tasted like cheeseburger. Ewww!
I have to admit I really enjoyed myself. I'm actually a little excited for the birthdays we have coming up now that I've seen what can be done.
