Ingredients: For the Cake Layers:

  • 2 8-inch round vanilla cake layers, baked and cooled
  • Yellow food coloring
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish

For the Frosting:

  • 2 cups unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Yellow food coloring

For the Decorations:

  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • Green food coloring
  • Red, yellow, and green fondant
  • White fondant
  • Black food coloring (gel or edible marker)
  • Toothpicks



  1. Prepare the Cake Layers: Bake two 8-inch round vanilla cake layers according to your favorite recipe or using a boxed cake mix. Once cooled, level the tops of the cakes if necessary to create flat surfaces.
  2. Tint the Frosting: In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened butter until smooth. Gradually add the powdered sugar, mixing until well combined. Stir in the vanilla extract. Add yellow food coloring to tint the frosting to a pale yellow color, resembling the color of cheese.
  3. Assemble the Cake: Place one of the cooled cake layers on a serving platter or cake stand. Spread a layer of yellow frosting over the top of the cake. Place the second cake layer on top, pressing down gently to secure it. Use the remaining frosting to cover the top and sides of the cake, smoothing it out with a spatula.
  4. Add Sesame Seeds: Sprinkle sesame seeds over the top of the cake to mimic the appearance of a hamburger bun. Press the sesame seeds gently into the frosting to adhere.
  5. Prepare the Lettuce: In a small bowl, mix shredded coconut with a few drops of green food coloring until evenly tinted green. Spread the tinted coconut onto a plate to dry slightly.
  6. Create the Fondant Decorations: Roll out red, yellow, and green fondant to create tomato, cheese, and lettuce slices, respectively. Use a knife or fondant cutter to shape the fondant into circular slices of varying sizes.
  7. Shape the Burger Patty: Roll out a small amount of brown fondant and shape it into a round patty, slightly smaller than the diameter of the cake layers.
  8. Assemble the Burger: Place the fondant lettuce, cheese, tomato, and burger patty on top of the cake in layers, arranging them to resemble a cheeseburger. Secure the fondant decorations in place using toothpicks if necessary.
  9. Add Details: Use white fondant to create sesame seeds on the top bun, and black food coloring or edible markers to add grill marks to the burger patty if desired.
  10. Serve and Enjoy: Once assembled, your Cheeseburger Cake is ready to be served and enjoyed! Slice the cake with a sharp knife, revealing the layers of cake and frosting that resemble a delicious cheeseburger.
