Cupcake Sliders

Burger Cupcakes Making A Life

If you are heading to a BBQ this weekend, or hosting a BBQ what are you serving for dessert?  How about cupcake sliders? These are a great conversation starter, plus you might fool the occasional guest into thinking that they are actually meat burgers.

Use your favourite cake recipe or boxed cake mix for the vanilla buns and chocolate patty. If you happen to have a silicone cupcake tray use it, because it means that there are no paper wrappers to remove.

Condiment ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut and Green food colouring for the relish
  • Yellow & Red tube frosting for the mustard and ketchup
  • white frosting for the mayo
  • orange food colouring and white fondant for the cheese slices
  • Decorative sticks (from the Dollar Store)
  • sesame seeds

Step 1. Prepare batter & bake cupcakes, if the goal is 12 cupcakes burgers you need 3-6 chocolate and 12 vanilla.

Step 2.  While the vanilla are still hot roll the top of the cupcake in a plate of sesame seeds

Step 3.  Let cool

Step 4. Cut the vanilla into 2 pieces, and chocolate into 2-3 pieces depending on the size

Step 5.  Mix 1/2 a cup of coconut with green food dye to make relish

Step 6.  Using prepackaged tubes of frosting for the ketchup & mustard, or a piping bag and coloured frosting, stick the coconut relish to the top of the bottom bun with either ketchup or mustard.  You could also use white frosting if you like mayo on your burger.  Drizzle a little ketchup or mustard on the edges for fun.  Put the burger on the bottom bun.

Step 7.  Using the alternate condiment put the top of the burger on the bun, again drizzling a little on the edges.    Stick a decorative stick in the top if you wish.  ENJOY.

    I totally thought they were beef burger sliders! They look so real, but now I really want a cupcake! What a creative and awesome idea.
