Dinner for Dessert

Tonight the Young Men at church are having a fundraiser dinner and the leaders and Young Men were suppose to make a dessert to be auctioned off. Since Kevin works with the YM, he (or me) had to come up with something fun. This is what we went with. I have made the hamburger cake before, but I never knew what to use for the cheese. So I turned to the internet for help. I found one person who said she melted starbursts to make the cheese, so I decided to give that a try. The melting didn't work, but softening and rolling them out did, and I will say it looks just like a slice a cheddar cheese. I also put crushed oreo around the patty part to give it more dimension and I made onions out of white gum drops. I also found the idea for the fries online, they are made of sugar cookie dough and I used my Pampered Cheff crinkle cutter to give it that look. I wish I wouldn't have squirt the frosting ketchup over the fries, I like how it looked better without, but o-well, it is done.

Wow that is amazing, so detailed.

I'm looking in the month of june for us, it's quite pack. I fursure we can't do it this week, or the 24th, or the 26th. Does not leave much open. Our June is a very crazy month, but I want us all to get together.

That is so amazing. I have zero culinary talent so combine that with the fact that I have little creative talent making a humburger cake is out of the question. How fun for the YM!
