I haven't made them, but I'm anxious to see what is best. I know you need to keep in mind for the brownie or choc. cake "hamburger", so that takes up some size.

I first saw them posted by cookiemamma2. I fell in love with the idea. We've made giant 10" cheeseburgers, but these little ones are so adorable. Here is her link to see them in case you want an idea of how they look. http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1418823
In the meantime mskavon, please post your pics after you make them. I'm hoping to do a baking activities class for the kids in our community and this is a project I want to include for them. I think they'll have tons of fun making these. (and the french fries)

i saw those too. that's where i got the idea from. the customer wanted plain cupcakes. i told them that they could get plain cupcakes from the local supermarket (lol) and then asked if she would mind if i did something different? the rest is history. i'm looking at alot of the hamburger cupcakes and noticing that the "cheese" is made of fondant? the burger is chocolate cake or brownies? and i think that i'm just going to play it simple with "ketchup" and "mustard".

i'm going to do the burger and fries for my stepdaughter's bday. i think that idea is so cute!

I can't imagine she and everyone else won't absolutely love those cupcakes. They are different and adorable and loads of fun. I kinda like the idea of brownies for burger part.

here they are. they came out better than what i expected but i'm still not completely pleased. the customer loved them tho! icon_smile.gif

i used a leaf tip for the lettuce, tip 2 for the ketchup and mustard. i didnt go with the brownie for the "meat", just regular chocolate cake. i think i'm gong to try the brownie for the next go around.

they were surprisingly easy AND fast to make. took about 1 hour to decorate (after baking).

You forgot to add the picture or the link. I'm anxious to see them. So glad to hear both you and your customer are happy with them.

I made them last year for both of my daughters' year end picnics and they were a HUGE success. I have made many things since, but the kids still remember the hamburgers.

I used regular sized cupcakes for mine.

Good Luck!

I bake a brownie , then smoosh it up when cool, add a bit of chocolate icing to hold it together, then shap them into patties to just fit outside the area of the horizontally cut cupcake, then use MMF for cheese and lettuce leafs, BC mustard and ketchup and mayo, then I brush tops of cupcake "bun" with a small amout of simple syrup , then shake on a few sesame seeds, which makes an actual "bun" look.
