Where’s the beef?? Well there’s no beef in these burgers just delicious cupcakes! Ok the fries in the pic are actually fries but when I do these cupcakes again I am totally making sugar cookie fries 🙃
The “buns” are vanilla cupcakes. I use a standard muffin tin for my cupcakes so they’re not overly big. These burger cupcakes are quite tall once assembled so unless you’re making them for someone who is an absolute cupcake fiend, standard size is just perfect 👌🏽I try and horizontally slice the cupcakes so the top and bottom are the same height but sometimes I have to trim a little extra off the bottom one to even them out and sometimes I trim just so I can eat some 😳
I brush a little water on the top “bun” with a pastry brush and sprinkle some sesame seeds. I think you can get candied sunflower seeds at a specialty store but really I don’t have time for specialty sunflower seed shopping 😒
With the condiments I play around with different ways to create them. The ketchup and mustard are red and yellow buttercream frosting. I frost the bottom bun with “ketchup” and then place the “burger” on top, and then frost the burger with “mustard”. I make sure both the ketchup and mustard ooze out so it’s visible.
These cupcakes are the perfect dessert at a BBQ or even game night. Speaking of BBQ, stay tuned for my next post on my BBQ grill cupcakes!
Until next time…keep it creative!
