A cake for my brother! He’s a lover of Whataburger. So much so, that he received a pair of Chuck Taylor type shoes with the branding this Christmas. (For those not in the US/the Southwest-it’s a fast food chain that has a high loyalty/following in Texas. I think it’s ok, but I’m not a huge fast-food burger person.)
My husband took the logo on their cup
And made this version per my request in five minutes (which would have taken me forever since I would have done it freehand).
I used a butter based batter to follow the template (mirror image) then froze it. Then covered with a sponge cake batter and baked briefly. Once cool, I used a mold and filled that sucker with white chocolate mousse. Then my kids and I brought joy to “Uncle B” and distracted him from yard work. He loved it!
