Whopper Cake

Some time ago on pinterest, I saw a cake covered in whoppers and thought it looked pretty cool. When I was a bridesmaid in a wedding earlier this year and they asked the wedding party to bring desserts to the wedding, I decided to make a whopper cake (and a cheesecake, but that’s another story). I don’t often make chocolate desserts since my husband is allergic, but since this was for a bunch of people at a wedding I figured it was a good chance to play with chocolate.

As I was making two desserts the night before the wedding, I made this cake with boxed cake mix and canned icing. I used one box of devil’s food chocolate cake to make two 9″ rounds, and chocolate icing. After stacking and icing the cakes, I stuck whoppers on/around the whole cake – using the icing as an adhesive. It took about one and a half of those 12 oz cartons of whoppers. They stuck on pretty well, but I brought some of the leftover whoppers to the wedding to replace a few that got dislodged on the car ride to the church. I didn’t actually get to taste it since it was gone by the time the wedding party got inside from taking pictures, but I did get lots of great comments and questions about it at the reception :) You could use icing to stick all kinds of candies to a cake – I think it would be really fun with something in rainbow colors like M&Ms or skittles.

And here’s a picture of Eddie & me at the wedding. The bride wanted us to all wear green and each have a different accessory color to match our bouquets. Mine was orange (obviously), and I ended up making my dress, jewelry, and headband.
