Move over watermelon cupcakes…these are the new cutest cupcakes in this blog!
These burger cupcakes (from Bakerella) were all the rage on my cooking message board around the 4th of July, but I didn’t have an opportunity to make them until now. We attended a Labor Day BBQ at my Aunt/Uncle’s house and I decided to bring these. Everyone loved them!
At one point my sister’s Mother-in-Law held a cupcake up to her husband and said “you need to try these” and he said “oh, no thanks, I just had a hamburger for lunch.” Haha! He didn’t realize it was dessert! I love it.
1 box Yellow Cake Mix
1 box Fudge Brownie Mix
2 cans Buttercream Frosting
Sesame seeds (optional)
Green, Red and Yellow food coloring
Make cupcakes according to package directions. Remove from paper liners and allow to cool.
Make browines according to package directions. Cool completely.
Cut the cupcake into thirds. Set aside the middle third of the cupcake (I won’t snitch if you nibble on these while making the cupcakes).
Cut circles out of the brownie mix.
Place brownie in between cupcake layers and set aside while coloring your frosting.
Ready 3 small bowls and fill with frosting. Add food coloring to each bowl until desired shade is achieved. Place in ziploc bag, cut off the tip, pipe onto the top of the brownie pieces and replace the top.
If desired, put a small amount of water on the top of the cupcake and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
