How do you wrap up four fun-filled days with 40 blogging friends aboard the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas? It's hard, I tell you! I attended the Brandcation #SeastheDay complimentary cruise with Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas, so I wanted to really try out everything that the ship had to offer. There were so many things to do on the ship, between a port of call in sunny Cozumel, Mexico, watching an ice skating show, surfing and eating...
I think one of my favorite things was learning how to make a cheeseburger out of cupcakes.
I know, I know, out of all of the incredible activity options, I choose making cupcakes! It was just such a unique experience to have on a cruise ship! There is a little cupcake shop on the Royal Promenade called The Cupcake Cupboard, where you can buy adorable little cupcakes. Aside from offering sweet treats and cupcake-themed trinkets, you can take Cupcake Decorating Classes for a small fee.
Our group was taught how to make Cheeseburger and French Fry cupcakes. I know, I know, it sounds strange, but it's simply using a cupcake and fondant to make what looks like a Cheeseburger!
It was SO MUCH FUN!
We began with two vanilla and one chocolate cupcake, which were so incredibly moist, I couldn't believe it!
The pastry chef led us through each step, showing us exactly how to slice the cupcakes to make different layers of buns and hamburger patty.
We even decorated each layer with frosting to look like drips of ketchup and mustard, then "wilted" our fondant to make it look like lettuce and pulled the edges of our fondant to look like melted cheese.
I have always wanted to take a cake decorating class, but I never imagined I would have the opportunity to do one on a cruise ship! Royal Caribbean certainly offers a variety of indoor activities that I would never think would be available while cruising!
It was such a fun experience to decorate cupcakes with all of my friends, and the fact that we had a master baker leading us along the way? Let's just say that I wouldn't have created such a cupcake masterpiece without his assistance! ha ha!
We were having a little friendly competition on who could build the tallest cupcake...and I came in second.
UGH. The agony of defeat!
That's okay, because my consolation prize was that I got to eat my cupcake!

That is super cute! I have never been on a cruise, but it's on my wish list. Looks like Royal Carribean is a good one to try because I love good food.
What a perfect ending to an amazing trip! Your cupcake definitely was a winner!
That cupcake class is so much fun, my daughter loved every minute. Royal Caribbean is awesome, we loved our cruise with them!
A Cupcake Decorating Class??? That is WAY too cool! I just love cruises. This sounds so fun.
I like the classes that they treated you to. I too would have wanted to win!
Ok these Cheeseburger and French Fry cupcakes are really adorable. How fun that you had a lesson to make then while on Royal Caribbean. That cruise ships really offers a lot.
That looks like so much fun! And how cute are those hamburger cupcakes?

wow that is talent! I would hate to eat it because it looks so awesome! I want to go on a cruise, looks so relaxing!
I would love to take a cupcake decorating class! This is so cute! 🙂
Okay that is one awesome cupcake. I love fondant, you can do so much with it.
LOVE it! One of the cutest cupcakes ever! Now I want a hamburger and a cupcake!
Those are really neat! Wow, can't believe your tall cupcake came in second! I can only imagine what first must have looked like....wowzers!
Oh my gosh, I so would have chosen this activity too! I love the way your burger and fried came out!
I loved seeing all the pictures of the cupcakes you gals decorated! I love that they even offer that type of class on board!
Those are so stinkin' cute! Now it is 9AM and I am craving both a hamburger and a cupcake!

Dang, that is a wicked tall cupcake. It sounds like a super fun class!!
You needed a little flag it somethin to bring you to the top! I love the chocolate "burger" part!
What a FUN time and lovely cupcakes! I would have loved a bite 🙂
What a yummy looking hamburger cupcake! Looks like you had a lot of fun on your cruise!
I Love all things related to cupcakes! Your hamburger cupcake is to die for! Such a fun idea!
A hamburger cupcake? Is that a trick you play on your brain? It looks like a hamburger, but it tastes like a cupcake. I would never have guessed that a cupcake decorating class would be available on a cruise. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Good for you.
What an awesome experience, getting to make a hamburger from a cupcake. It looks so close to the real thing, just a little smaller! 🙂
It would be so fun to learn to make cupcakes like that! I never thought about doing that on a cruise!
Decorating cupcakes sounds like so much fun! And how awesome is that hamburger?!
That looks like so much fun, I love cupcake decorating too! I bet they were so delicious to eat after decorating.
What a fun idea for a cupcake. And great activity to do aboard the ship that isn't all in the sun and water!
What a fun ship! I love that they offer you cooking classes like that. Those cupcakes look amazing!
I would totally be up for this! How cool that they offer this!
Wowzers! I am thinking that is the 8th wonder of the world. That is quite a piece of art! Love it
Oh man, this sound like a heck of a time. I've been wanting to take cupcake decorating classes. What fun! Your cupcake totally ROCKS!
That is totally adorable! I'd try to build one of those for my kids, it's super cute! It's great to hear how diverse the activities onboard really are!

Those are so cute! I'm not so sure that my daughter would eat them, though. She's super literal. Lol.
That cupcake is so awesome! I had no idea they had such unique activities on board! I've only be on boring Carnival. All they do is try to drink and gamble (neither are my scene). How did get get it taller? Must have cheated! 😉
I am so jealous! What an amazing blog campaign. Those cheeseburgers look adorable and scrumptious.
This is amazing on so many levels! What a fun idea to create hamburger cupcakes!
THAT is a fabulous activity to do. i'm all about cupcakes and cake anyway...
That looks so beautiful there! I would love to get up and walk outside to that! My son would like to walk outside to that cupcake! Scooby-Doo would be proud! 🙂
I'm trying to find a cruise to go on now that leaves out of Miami or Tampa. We cruise often and we always love the food and entertainment on board!
Well, it's obvious it's time for me to go on another cruise. I want to keep reading y your post and looking at your photos. What a fun time.
That looks just like a burger. This is fun!
I can't believe how cute those came out! What a fun and different thing to do on a cruise!
You're totally right, that is a really unique thing to have on a cruise trip. Bonus, they turned out SO cute. Im already thinking of an even I cant make them at. lol
A cruise is on our agenda someday. A Caribbean cruise sounds amazing but we have always wanted to do an Alaska one too.
Those cupcakes turned out so cute! I think that is definitely a different kind of activity to do on a cruise. I think it is something that I would enjoy doing immensely!
It's been 20 something years since I've been on a cruise. But I don't remember cake decorating as a class. How fun.
How cute are those Cheeseburger and French Fry cupcakes?! Great job! It's amazing what you can do with food isn't it? My kids and I made meatloaf and mashed potato cupcakes once-
Okay these look way too cool. I bet they were equally yummy 🙂
