Here’s How the Original Story Went:
What do I need to make these Hamburger Cupcakes?
- box of yellow cake mix
- water, oil, egg
- chocolate fudge frosting
- red, yellow and green frosting
- white jimmies (sprinkles)
You don’t want to fill the cupcake tin up too full. I made that mistake on a few of them and they had more of that “cap” on top.
Slice the top off of the cupcake. Frost the bottom with chocolate fudge frosting to form the “burger.” Add green frosting to make the “lettuce.” Next up, yellow and red frosting for the “mustard and ketchup.”
Top with the top of the cupcake.
Top with the white jimmies for the “sesame seed bun effect.”

- Mini Mouse Cupcakes
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- water, oil and eggs to prepare mix
- Chocolate Fudge Frosting
- Red, Yellow and Green Frosting
- White Jimmies (sprinkles)
Prepare cake mix according to box instructions. Spray cupcake pans with liners. Fill the cupcake liners 1/3 of the way full. You want them to bake just to the edge of the liner, not "muffin top" over.
Bake according to package instructions. Remove the cakes from the pan and cut the tops off.
Pipe or gently spread chocolate frosting on the bottom layer of the cupcake to make the burger. Drizzle the red, yellow and green frosting towards the edges to resemble the condiments.
Put the tops on and then add the sprinkles.
Tip - Add the sprinkles to the cupcakes a couple of minutes before they are done baking and they will stick a little better.
You can use your own yellow cake recipe, and frosting recipes if desired.
