Hamburger Cupcakes

Hamburger Cupcakes - LiveDineParty

Having a BBQ this summer and need a dessert?  These hamburger cupcakes are super cute and easy to make.  And, they were a hit at our summer BBQ this year.  I used boxed yellow cake mix as a time saver (I know I’m disappointed in myself too), but made my favorite homemade chocolate buttercream frosting.

  • First make the cupcakes according to directions and let them cool completely.
  • Make the chocolate buttercream frosting and chill for twenty minutes so that is easier to work with.
  • Slice the cupcakes in half using a serrated knife to create the hamburger bun.
  • Pipe on the chocolate frosting on the bottom half of the cupcake.  I used a star tip for this.Hamburger Cupcakes - LiveDineParty
  • Layer on green, yellow and red icing for the lettuce, mustard and ketchup.  I used a basket-weave tip for the lettuce and two different sized round tips for the mustard and ketchup.

  • Cool in the fridge so that the frosting can set prior to putting the top of the bun on.
  • Enjoy!
