Prep: 30 mins | Cook: 40 mins
  • 1

    For the Cake: Position rack in centre of oven, then preheat to 350°F. Spray an 8- or 9-in round cake pan and a larger metal or oven-proof glass bowl with non-stick cooking spray.

    Prepare cake mix according to package directions, pouring 1/2 of batter into each prepared pan and bowl. Bake until a toothpick inserted in centre of cakes come out clean, about 30 minutes for the cake pan, and about 40 minutes for the cake bowl. Cool both on a rack for 15 minutes. Then remove cakes from pans and let cool completely on rack.

  • 3

    Trim tops of cakes to make a flat surface. Wrap cakes in aluminum foil and freeze 1 hour.

  • 4

    Remove foil for flat cake and arrange on a serving platter. Scoop ice cream over cake. Shape, using a metal spatula, into a hamburger patty shape. Freeze at least 1 hour.

    For the hamburger decorations: Meanwhile, spray a 9-in glass pie plate with non-stick cooking spray. Microwave Starbursts on pie plate 10 seconds to soften. Press together and flatten with rolling pin between two sheets of waxed paper. Cut into a square "cheese slice".

  • 6

    Arrange "cheese" on "hamburger patty", then top with "lettuce" and "tomato" candies. For "bun", top with the larger cake, then sprinkle with sesame seeds. Freeze 4 hours or until ready to serve.
