Give me a week or two to go absolutely cuckoo.

Lots of people forget that cooking is a craft, nay an ART, as much as any other on Craftster.  My husband and I decided to do this challenge together since we are total foodies and enjoy spending time together in the kitchen.

This project was inspired by an article in Martha Stewart Living that appeared some time ago. 

I give you, miniature fast-food.

i know it's hard to tell from this shot, so I'll give you something for scale. . . .

our burger was a little over one inch tall and about an inch wide.

Here, we have the "money shot" of our burger with its many teeny layers

After we took all the pictures we cut the tiny burger in half and each ate half.  It tasted awesome.

Our official entry is the burger, though the burger and fries together are still less than two inches.
Here are some shots of the preparation of our mini-meal.  Everything was handmade, including the tiny buns.

I used a Splenda packet for scale, since it was two inches long.  Check out the mini pickles, onions and tomato!

Frozen ground beef, cut with a jigger.

It only took a few seconds to cook.

Testing the tiny french fries.

Two batches later. . .

So. . .very. . .small.

I made the soda and tray out of polymer clay and my husband designed and printed the label and tray liner out of Craftster content

We had so much fun making this together.  It was seriously challenging, right down to the sesame seeds. 

So, from the two of us, we hope you enjoy our delicious entry. . . .I know we did!

 Shocked INSANITY!!!

I thought it was really cute & that you did it out of clay or whatever & thought jeez what detail.... that is making me hungry.  Then the close up of the burger.....DAY-UM!  Its REAL?  Very cool. 
I'm impressed.  Your pictures are wonderful.

(ok so now I'm craving a burger....ergh.)

Good job.
