My sweetie pie turned 30 yesterday and I thought I'd share the dessert I made for him. I was even able to use my Cricut for it!! I got the recipe and idea from Bakerella. Check out the website for more seriously cute ideas! The 'fries' are sugar cookies and the 'hamburgers' are cupcakes, brownies, and frosting.
The complete 'meal':
Scott used to work at In-N-Out (a California burger chain) while in high school and college, and he was recently gifted an apron, so I thought I'd run with the theme. I downloaded the logo from the internet and imported it into Inkscape to convert it into a .svg file which I then cut with SCAL. It was my first inkscape project, and it wasn't as complicated as I thought it would be. Wow--I'm excited for all I can do with this program! There is a link to purchase SCAL on the right hand column of my blog, if you're interested.
Then I altered the logo a bit to make a few "Happy Birthday" fry holders:
Here's a closeup of the burgers:
I made the paper trays as well--from a template included on Bakerella's site. I had to alter the size of the fry holders to accomodate the logo--I didn't want to make the letters any smaller so I had to make the holders larger. Here's a serving:
Here are a couple shots of the burger assembly--my favorite part is getting to figure out a way to 'clean up' the brownie scraps!
Putting on the 'ketchup, mustard, and lettuce':
