|Mis En Place – syrup, filling of choice, torted cake, and buttercream|
|Adding simple syrup to the layers to make sure they’re moist|
|Create a dam of icing|
|Fill with your…umm…filling.|

The burger was made from a combination of fondant and gum paste. It’s known as 50/50.

Bacon was awesome to make: red fondant mixed with the burger brown and white fondant rolled in to it…then sliced. Yes, those are sesame seeds. Use a pin to add them to the burger bun on top of a tiny droplet of piping jelly.
