Hamburger Cupcakes

Burgers have been my son's favourite food ever since he was a little boy, so for his birthday dinner every year burgers are his first request. This year, for his tenth birthday, I added a twist - hamburger cupcakes for dessert!

1. Bake a dozen regular vanilla cupcakes and a dozen mini chocolate cupcakes (just fill the cup with about a third of the batter you normally would.)

2. When cupcakes are cooled, carefully remove the paper cups and cut the vanilla cupcakes ("buns") in half width-wise.

3. Place the chocolate mini cupcakes ("patty") upside-down on top of the bottom half of the vanilla cupcake.

4. Make and colour green, red and yellow fondant. Roll out and cut the green fondant as "lettuce leaves" and place on top of the "patty." Shape and drape the red and yellow fondant on top for ketchup and mustard.

5. Place the top half of the vanilla cupcake on top and sprinkle with sugar.

It's a time-consuming project, but well worth it for the result. My burger-obsessed birthday boy was out of his mind with excitement over these hamburger cupcakes!
