So on Tuesday it was my boyfriend’s birthday, he isn’t the biggest fan of cake or stuff like that so instead of baking him a cake, we decided that we would make a fast food cake for his party! He loves fast food and thought this would be quite fun and a bit different :) we got the inspiration from Epic Meal Time who are massive on YouTube and do things like this just a bit better :P
We have been planning this for a long time and deciding what we needed in it and what would make the best fillers! It was quite pricey to make but when you think it fed 15 hungry teenagers, so not too bad. Matty’s favourite fast food is chicken so we included a lot of chicken based products and pizzas :)
To start off with we went to Morrisons and bought 2 of their 14in pizzas, one was pepperoni and the other was spicy chicken, these would work as the base and middle to keep its shape and so we could stack it higher :) we also bought mozzarella, bacon and nachos! Before we bought the other stuff we cooked the pizzas and bacon (bacon was put into sheets) so they only had to be heated and so we knew they were properly cooked!
After they were cooked we then went on our mission to buy the fast food. Around where we live we are quite limited to the fast food so we only went to KFC and McDonalds! We got popcorn chicken and chicken strips from KFC, then drove round and bought 2 large fries, 5 piece chicken select, 5 cheeseburgers and 20 chicken nuggets! It all smelt so good and really made me super hungry!
Then was the building stage! I have done a vlog on this which will be up in a couple of days if you want to see it being made :) Chicken pizza was first which we placed on a tray and tinfoil. Then there was a layer of bacon, the burgers, popcorn chicken, fries and cheese. Then more bacon, pepperoni pizza, bacon, chicken nuggets, selects, strips and fries with nachos and cheese to finish it off! It looked amazing and turned out a lot better than we had planed :)
This was all done before people arrived and we just put it in the oven. When everyone had arrived we just turned the oven on and let it warm through :) when it came out the oven it did look incredible and much better than planned which is always good!
We served up which was quite easy and just enjoyed the goodness :) some people ate it layer by layer then others tried to eat it as a pie! It tasted just like the individual food would but meant you had a bit of everything on your plate! The whole pie was eaten and everyone enjoyed it :)
It was so fun to make and was really fun to do for the party :) everyone was talking about it and think it definably made the evening one to remember! I wouldn’t do it all the time because it’s nice as a one off but I will be making it again in the future for sure!!!
Have you done anything different like this before?
