This was a lot of fun. We had a barbeque for our nephew’s birthday and decided to stick with the flavors of the day. I have to be honest this idea is really very easy. With the exception of the dreaded cleanup on making multiple frosting colors it’s an easy project.
I made the “buns” with a yellow cupcake cut in half horizontally. The “hamburger patty” is a brownie that I cut with a round cookie cutter after it was cooked. I did bake the brownies in a larger pan than recommended to keep them a bit more thin. Just be sure to adjust your cooking time of you go this route. Lettuce, cheese and tomato? That is just colored frosting. I used different tips for different effects…mostly because I was not washing one to reuse it. It ended up working well though since I was able to get a leafy effect for the “lettuce”. A few sesame seeds on the top and you’ll have yourself a “burger”.
The “fries” are simply sugar cookies sprinkled with a bit of sugar and cut into strips before baking. I bought some red and white paper in the scrapbook section of Michael’s and created paper cups for the fries
