Meg, the Budding Blogger, has been dying to make these cupcakes disguised as hamburgers. I finally told her she could do it as long as I didn't have to do any of the work. She attempted to document all her steps, as any self-respecting food blogger would!
That missing cupcake is because someone went a little crazy with a sharp knife on my silicon muffin pan. Grrrr.
Brownies that were made a day in advance, giving pickers opportunities to pick! We had discussed making them in a 9x13 pan so there would be more, thinner, brownies, but she forgot. Personally, I liked the thick
brownie burger patty (because who doesn't like more chocolate?).
The lettuce is coconut flakes dyed green. The ketchup and mustard are buttercream, dyed to match. She did a great job pulling together pinks and purples to make the red. It was a little easier, I think, to get the correct mustard color which was frighteningly accurate!
The taste was very sweet, but the textures was very much like a real, albeit slightly overcooked, crusty burger. It was weird that it felt like a burger in your mouth, but didn't taste like one!
We all thought they were pretty awesome, but as with real hamburgers, one is usually enough. ;-)
