Birthday Burgers

Our number one cousin came to visit for her birthday. My daughter and my wife decided to make a special burger for her celebration.


This burger is no conventional burger. It is a cupcake concoction of amazing fun. Making it was a fun challenge. They started by making some lettuce--coconut shavings stirred with green food coloring!

Stirring the lettuce

Stirring so fast it blurs!

They made some cupcakes from scratch for the buns. That was probably the easiest part of the project.

Cupcakes as buns

The trickiest part was making burgers. We used a plain brownie mix (no nuts or chunks or anything inside) and cut it into circles the same size as the cupcakes. We found a round cookie cutter that was the right size.


Buttercream frosting mixed with red food coloring made the ketchup. Mixed with yellow food coloring the frosting made the cheese.

Putting it all together

Add the lettuce!

Final product

We did test a burger before feeding one to the birthday girl.

A fun time was had by all!
