Meanwhile, place potatoes in a small saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain. Press through a potato ricer or strainer into a small bowl. Stir in the milk, salt and white pepper. 4. Place one burger on a serving plate. Spread 3/4 cup mashed potatoes over the top.

Tint remaining cream cheese green; pipe tops on carrots. Press breadcrumbs into sides of cake.
