Fast Food Fun

Brownie Burger Cupcakes & Cookie Fries

Cupcake Buns + Brownie Burgers + Cookie Fries = One Happy Meal!

Or many…

Brownie Burger Cupcakes & Cookie Fries

I can hardly stand how cute these little guys are. You’ve probably seen them around before. I know I have. Cupcakes Take The Cake has featured cute ones. But, they are even cuter in person as I discovered this weekend. Oh my gawd… they just make me want to smile. I switched mine up a little by doing the burger out of brownies. But, you can just as easily make chocolate cupcakes and cut them in thirds to use instead. And if you want more realistic lettuce, tint some coconut (yuck) green.

I really decided to make these when I thought about making a meal out of them for Father’s Day, complete with sugar cookie french fries. I wasn’t sure if they would turn out, but I am so thrilled with the end result. Actually, I think the fries might be my favorite part.

Before I started baking, I made a template for a miniature paper box tray and french fry holder. You can download the 4-page pdf (636 KB) here if you want it. The pdf contains the tray template, french fry holder template (blank & with Happy Father’s Day). It also includes the design for the Happy Father’s Day tissue paper.

boxes

I printed the tray template on card stock (heavier weight paper), the french fry template on vellum (semi-transparent paper) and the tissue insert on tracing paper (really thin paper from Canson Art pad).

All three paper weights went through my printer fine – one sheet at a time to be safe. But, if you’re unsure about running the tracing paper through your printer, then just use regular plain white tissue paper.

Cut out the shapes as shown in the picture above with scissors or a sharp blade. Then fold along all the printed lines. Use double-sided tape to secure the flaps. Cut the tissue paper in half and place in the tray print side down.

Now, for the baking. Keeping with the fast food fun theme, I went all mixes on these. That’s right. I said mixes. For the cookies, brownies and the cupcakes. Don’t cringe.

You know I love learning to bake new things from scratch because it’s really empowering and satisfying and it usually tastes better, too. But, before a couple of years ago, I did all my baking from a box and really don’t have a problem using a mix. There, I said it. I feel better now.

Mixes

So, I picked up several kinds.

The brownies baked first in a 13 X 9 pan. You don’t need any help there.

The cookies came next. I wanted to do rolled sugar cookies and luckily Mrs. Crocker offered some tips on how to convert the mix for better results.

Instructions

Except I didn’t do the whole floured surface thing. I used parchment paper underneath and on top of the dough. Then I rolled it out with a rolling pin using rubber band spacers attached to ensure an even thickness. This is a really handy trick and so not messy. I got these tips from the book, Cookie Craft. If you want to learn more about rolled sugar cookies, it’s great.

Cookie Dough

See… perfectly even dough and a clean surface.

Here’s where I started experimenting, but it worked out pretty well.

French Fry Cookies

Cut the dough in thin strips with a sharp knife and then a long cut down the center. The varied lengths are fine because you don’t want all your french fries exactly the same size. Remove the alternating strips so it won’t bake into one giant blob. (Reserve dough strips and repeat) Sprinkle sugar on top of the dough. Bake for about 8 minutes at 350 degrees.

These spread more than I had hoped they would for rolled sugar cookies. I know. I know. The mix thing. But, no problem. Just take your knife and cut each “steak fry” down the center for “skinny fries.” Do this right when they come out of the oven. Sprinkle more sugar on top while they are still warm, too. Lightly rub it on to make sure it sticks good.

And voila……

Sugar Cookie French Fries

A big pile of fries. Yum! Try not to eat too many before you serve them. You can’t eat just one. Trust me.

Next up… cupcakes. I made these the next morning to spread out the work.

Boxes, brownies, and fries on one day. Cupcakes and decorating the next.

Rejects

I baked 24 cupcakes using a yellow cake mix. I also exchanged 1 cup of buttermilk instead of the water. It made them nice and yummy. To test, I greased and floured one 12-cup cupcake tray and used Pam on the second. I wanted my buns to have smooth sides, you know. Well, they came out smooth, but also brown.

You can see what’s coming.

Yes. Yes. I made 24 more cupcakes. This time I used milk instead of water. No reason. Just to try it.

Cupcake Burger Buns

They were good, too. And this time I used paper liners to ensure the right color cupcake bun.

Brownie Burgers

Now it’s time to assemble. Cut each cooled cupcake in half or thirds depending on how tall it is. Cut out 24 circles from the completely cooled brownies and place in between the cupcake bun.
I used my ever so handy graduated circle cutters to do the trick. Size 2″ for uniform burgers.

Then… and this might be the most important thing.

Take a break and dispose of the scraps……

Scraps

… You’ll figure something out.

Next up. Frostings.

Frosting

Divide the canned frosting in three bowls. Two can have equal amounts for the mustard and ketchup. The third – a little more for the lettuce. The colors I used to tint were, Wilton Leaf Green, Wilton Golden Yellow, and Americolor Super Red.

Frostings

Perty!

Frosting Condiments

To make the red a little deeper, use a tiny bit of violet when you mix. Place each color in a ziploc bag and snip a small tip off one corner.

Brownie Burger Cupcake

Gently squeeze out the mustard and ketchup first. Then the lettuce in more of a squiggly design. Place the top of the bun on and press gently.

Now for the finishing touch. Brush a very thin layer of water over the top of the bun or either dab a few drops of water on with your finger. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and they’ll stick.

There you have it.

And, if you use this template, there’s a blank french fry holder in it. Use it and you can serve these for a family cookout or Fourth of July party.

Brownie Burger Cupcakes & Cookie Fries

People will go crazy for them, don’t you think.

Thick Brownie Burger Cupcake

Man, that’s one good looking burger. So thick … and…

Burger Bite

Tasty, too! Hope you like them.

Now, I’m curious. When it comes to mixes, how do you roll?
Use them? Refuse them? Or improve them?

The hamburgers are so adorable! I have a friend's bday coming up. I was wondering do you have the french fry holder and bottom tissue in word format to share? In PDF you can't make changes. I so thought putting happy birthday George on the paper goods would be awesome! You could adapt the paper goods to anything and any occasion. Your ideas are very versatile.

I like to bake from scratch, but the odd time, I will use a mix. For a project like this, the mixes would be quite appropriate.

These are so cute! I can't wait to make them!
I use cake mixes a lot- usually doctored up. But when I use them straight I get the most compliments! People love them! I also only use DH brownies- they are for sure the best brownies ever! Even those I doctor sometimes (graham cracker crumbs in the batter with marshmallows on top- yum!)Sugar cookie dough and frosting I always make from scratch.

I have never seen these before. They are too stinking cute! I am definitely going to find an occasion to make these. Can't for Father's day. My hubby will be out of state.

I love adding stuff to my mixes! I always have at least 2 boxes of white mix on hand. And I never make white cake LOL Lately I have been adding strawberry margarita mix to the cake batter instead of the full amount of water. Then I make Lime butter cream to go on top. They are wonderful!

Tammy said...

These are the cutest things ever. I love the way you made them for Father's Day!
As far as scratch versus mix, I prefer scratch since they tend to taste better. If I had to use a mix to save on time, I would have no problem with it. I don't like all the preservatives in the mixes, but most people don't even notice them since they are so used to everything pretty much having them in it. Now that I have had scratch cakes and cupcakes, it is definitely harder to go back to mixes.

Hello!
Most of the time I bake from scratch, but then sometimes we decide to make a cake,or we want to try something new. (Dad loves cake!)Those times are a good oppertunity to use a mix.
And you know what? I just might make those little burgers! (Dad loves burgers too!)

As for mixes, no matter what, every person's batch has some uniqueness to it. My sister bakes with the same brand as our friends, and I swear hers come out the best! (ok so I am biased hehe) but true!

I usually like to bake things from scratch, but when the end result is more for looks(like this adorable burger combo)and there are lots of details to take care of, I say "go for it" and use the mix! Or perhaps you could use a little of both(scratch/mix), which also saves time:)
I really want to make these for the 4th of July! Thanks for the templates!

I very rarely use mixes… it just feels like cheating to me, at least for cakes.

I use mixes for stuff like Nanaimo Bars – things I don't know how to make otherwise.

Allison said...

Love the idea, so cute! As far as mixes, I use them-especially for brownies. However, for my cakes I add to them. For each cake mix I use I add a 1/2 cup sour cream and a 1/2 small package of instant pudding the same flavor (or vanilla if I can't match the cake mix flavor). They cook the same amount of time and then when they are done I put them on cooling racks for about 10 min. Afterwards I release them from the pans, wrap them in saran wrap and freeze them. When I am ready to ice them I let them defrost for a few hours. This makes the most moist cake I have ever eaten in my life!

These are amazing. As a tip, if you don't want your cut outs to spread, pop them in the fridge for 10-15 minutes after you have cut them out and put them on the cookie sheet before baking.

I totally refuse them! I can't stand how sweet the mixes are. I love baking from scratch though. My mother is a fantastic baker and totally made me a mix snob.

One confession though – I love jiffy cornbread mix made with vanilla soy milk. It's a cheap and quick cornbread that I can't tell came from a box.

As for the mixes… I'd love to be able to say that I "ALWAYS" bake from scratch, but I'd be lying!!! I usually prefer to spend more time on the decorating than the actual baking.

Plus, the Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix is awesome! I use it all the time! My favorite version is to add white chocolate chips & dried cranberries (Craisins) to it to doctor it up a bit. They come out amazing and no one would ever suspect that I didn't make them from scratch! But shhhhhhh… don't tell!

I do love to scratch bake, but its hard to beat a box mix sometimes.

Question-I love the idea of using the parchment paper to roll out your cookies, but I tried it and my paper just slid all over the counter. I even tried taping it and the tape wouldn't hold. Any clue as to what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

I've made a giant burger using a white cake mix and brownie mix for the burger. I decorated with moldable candies for lettuce and tomato.

For the fries I got a pound cake and sliced it into "fries" and toasted them in the oven. I got fry containers from McDonalds.

What a hoot. I'm going to try those mini ones though, they look great.

Thanks

I dig the mixes. I usually tweak them a little, extra chocolate, almond extract, lemon juice, whatever… I do from scratch baking for special occasions, but your average Tuesday night when I have about an hour and a half between getting home and putting the girls to bed, mixes are the way to go.

Sara V said...

Valerie- The purpose of parchment paper is to be nonstick, so tape won't help you here- it won't stick either. Once there is weight on it, your paper SHOULD stay in place. It may slide, if the surface your parchment paper is on is wet or very smooth, so leave the cleaning for later. Also, if the side of the paper that touches the counter, or wherever you're working, has flour or confectioner's sugar on it, it will probably slide. But there is really no trick to parchment paper, so if I were you, I'd just buy a different brand!

Mixes are fabulous, and I love to use them as a "base" and add my own tweaks to them. There is nothing wrong with a mix.

How does it feel to be so creative and inspire so many people?!!

So, seeing as how you really are that creative, maybe you (and your other fabulous readers) can help me out – I need a name for a new singing quartet! I have a contest going on my own blog.

I would love your input!

I've added your link to my own blog as well, and also mentioned this post on there. Hope to see you soon!

WOW, how perfect are you? We were planning on making a GIANT hamburger cake for pop's day (in addition to actual burgers for dinner), but now I'll just have to do tiny cupcakes instead :o) And the fries…they look so good! And those templates! I'm going to print some now to play around with since I'm sittin' here all bored at work.

I made burger cupcakes a while back too. People couldn't get over how adorable they were. Though mine were 'cheeseburgers' because I added little processes cheese slices made out of marshmallow fondant:

My Burger Cupcakes

I much prefer baking from scratch, but like you I used mixes for my burger cupcakes (except for the frosting and fondant). Mostly to try to speed up the already long process.
