Yummy Cheeseburger Cupcakes

Yummy Cheeseburger Cupcakes, a simple recipe for turning plain cupcakes into what looks like a cheeseburger.


  • Prepare the cupcakes as indicated on the packaging. I suggest that you use a very well prepped cupcake pan rather than liners. Allow the cupcakes to fully cool.
  • Cut the cooled cupcakes in half, from side to side ( horizontally ), to make the buns.
  • Make lettuce shred by tossing the shredded coconut with the green food coloring. Glove your hands if you intend to touch the food coloring.
  • Slice the donuts side to side ( horizontally ) to make the burger patties. Each donut will make two patties.
  • Start with the bottom layer which is actually the bottom half of the cut cupcake. Place the green shredded coconut on top of this.
  • Next, place the cut donut, aka the burger patty, on top of the coconut. One top of the coconut place a slice from the donut to serve as the patty.
  • Top the donut patty with the condiments. Use the orange frosting in a piping bag to make a square of 'cheese', letting the corners melt down over the patty . Then use the red frosting in a piping bag to drizzle on ketchup
  • Lastly, place the top bun (cupcake top half) on of the condiments and sprinkle sesame seed mix on top of the bun.
