Burger Cupcakes


I made this recipe last year and everyone loved it! The first attempt might be messy, but they turn out great!


You will need:


  • 1 package of vanilla cupcakes
  • 1 package of chocolate cupcakes
  • Sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 tube of red, yellow, and green vanilla frosting* 

*Note: You can save money by just using one can of vanilla frosting and and red, yellow, and green food coloring and mixing them yourself.




  • Mix and bake the vanilla and chocolate cupcakes according to packaged instructions.
  • Allow cupcakes to bake and cool completely.
  • Using a sharp knife, slice each vanilla cupcake in half. This will create the "bun" for your burger.
  • Slice each of the chocolate cupcakes about a half inch from the bottom to create the "patty" for your burger. 
  • Separate your bun. Place a little frosting in the center of the bottom cupcake. This will act as the glue to keep your finished cupcake together. It does not matter what color frosting you use.
  • Place the patty on the bottom bun.
  • To create "cheese", spread yellow frosting in a square around the edges of your patty.
  • For "lettuce," squeeze on the green frosting. Allow it to overlap with the yellow frosting a bit. 
  • For "ketchup", add some red frosting the same way you did with the green, allowing it to peek over the other colors
  • Set the top bun on top of your patty.
  • Mix two teaspoons of sugar with a teaspoon of water. Brush a bit of the mixture on top of your bun. This is to hold the sesame seeds.
  • Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.
  • Serve and enjoy!
