Hamburger Cupcake Recipe

Ingredients for making Hamburger Cupcakes:

  • 1 large box butter cake mix
  • 1 large box chocolate cake mix
  • Red frosting
  • Yellow frosting
  • Green frosting
  • Melted butter
  • Sesame seeds

Directions for making Hamburger Cupcakes:

Bake the cake mixes into cupcakes according to the package directions. Cool them completely.

Remove the tops from the cooled cupcakes. Place the chocolate cupcake top in the middle of two butter cupcake tops. Squirt red, yellow, and green frosting between them to look like mustard, ketchup, and lettuce, and to hold the layers together.

Brush a little butter over the top “bun” and sprinkle with a few sesame seeds. Serve and enjoy!
