Hamburger Cupcakes

by beth on July 2, 2010

While vis­it­ing North­ern Michi­gan my daugh­ter saw these adorable ham­burger cup­cakes in Hansen Foods of Sut­tons Bay.  Of course we had to buy them.   They were too cute to pass up.  Addi­tion­ally, Mamacita was cel­e­brat­ing a birth­day & as the birth­day girl if she wanted ham­burger cup­cakes she was going to get them by golly! Hey, she’s in preschool “by golly!” is bet­ter than “damn it!” at this age, not that she has ever over­heard an adult say that phrase & thought when she dropped play­doh at school that “damn it!” was a good response. No not at all (score for par­ent fail!!). Any­way, the cup­cakes.  The adorable lit­tle cupcakes.


We bought them & couldn’t wait to enjoy them.  And being that I love food, I peeked at how they were made.  A very sim­ple styling gave these sweet treats their per­fect patty punch.


Make a dozen yel­low cup­cakes, top them with sesame seeds & bake.  Make 1/2 a dozen choco­late cup­cakes.  Make a batch of home­made but­ter­cream frost­ing, you will divide this into thirds.  One third will be col­ored red (tomato), 1/3 yel­low (mus­tard), & the last 1/3 will be green (let­tuce). I would say you’d want a thin tip for the yellow/mustard & a wider flat tip for the red color with a tip that will give you a flat cur­tain affect for the green/lettuce. When the cup­cakes are baked & cooled you will cut in 1/2 your yel­low cup­cake.  The sesame seeded top will be the top of your “bun”.  Then take and cut into a patty your choco­late cup­cake, I’d think you’d be able to 1/2 these & shave off the more rounded tops to be flat giv­ing you two “pat­ties” from each choco­late cup­cake.  Then frost & assemble.


They would make a great addi­tion to any party or BBQ. I know we all enjoyed them.  Not only were they the cutest lit­tle cup­cakes but they tasted divine.   Def­i­nitely not a cake wreck.
