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.

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?

I am a scratch baker, except for white cake. I haven’t been able to find a recipe yet that matches the moistness and tenderness of boxed white cake.

Yes, Bakerella?…Are you there? Oh good. I would like to order a couple of brownie burgers please with a side of fries…make that ummmmm….20 orders could you? Is that possible? I think I have a 2 for 1 coupon!
heehee Seriously-if you hear the sound of a distant sonic boom, that is not the shuttle, it’ll be my family and friends reaction when I make these for our next party!
YOU SERIOUSLY ROCK! :)

I adore baking from scratch, but something about quick and easy boxed cakes works too! Except, I definately improve the box mix. I can’t say what my secret weapon is, but its yummy, and they are super moist and delicious! Love this idea, definaltey will try it for the 4th!!! I can hear it now, “oh the fireworks! OH THE CUPCAKE-BROWNIE-COOKIE-BURGERS!!!” :D

These are SO cute! I have spent the day making these little cuties for our Father’s Day Celebration tomorrow. You actually inspired me to buy some Wilton colors, I’m a cake wreckerator. :) I haven’t iced them yet, but they are looking SO Cute. I made a couple “Double Whoppers” for the big eaters in our family. I’ll post a pic on my blog so you can see!

As for mixes, I LOVE them and use them alot. Brownie mixes are great when used with something else (like ice cream or frosting). Brownies by themselves need to be from scratch though. Frosting, however, must be made from scratch. and cake mixes are my friend. Cake is, after all, only a vehicle for getting the frosting into my mouth. :)

The hamburger cupcakes are adorable and seem a little less time consuming than the cake pops. So cute!!!

I do use mixes, mostly for brownie bites. I have used recipes from the “Cake Doctor” to help a mix taste more homemade in a pinch.

Jehnay said...

I’ve seen these done with colored coconut as the lettuce. Now, I’m the kinda girl who doesn’t like a whole lot of frosting on my cupcakes. But then again I’ve never been coconut’s biggest fan either. I was trying to think of something to substitute for the “cheese” layer of frosting. Perhaps the yellow colored Fruit Roll-Ups or just a square of fondant. I’d imagine the fondant would taste a bit better though. I’d definitely love to give these a try. But I have SO many recipes in my queue already!

Sarah said...

I’m having a cookout Saturday, and although I didn’t need anything else on my list of things to do, I’ve just added one! These are amazing with the cookie fries. Never would have thought of that one.
I love scratch, but have to go the mix route when time is of the essence, or with things like this that I plan to spend so much time on presentation for.

Katie said...

I use mixes more often than I bake from scratch. I’m a married college student who also works full time, so my love of baking is limited to the amount of time I have outside all that other stuff!

I do use mixes also. Sometimes we get a craving for a good ol “box” cake. I don’t ever think there’s anything wrong with using them no matter what your purpose.

Forget the store bought versus home made cake debate – Bakerella doesn’t like coconut! Bakerella doesn’t like coconut! Bakerella doesn’t like coconut! You are not alone! (It is so amazing that I am not alone! – Sometimes it feels like I am)

HOnestly, these are super cute, but I think my husband would be SORELY disappointed that the hamburgers were not, in fact, meat.

But he would get over it!

These are always my favorite kinds of ideas. I love the FRIES you came up with! I can imagine doing slices of cheese out of tinted fondant or gum paste.

Regarding mixes, depends on the situation but often I use them AND improve them!

Katrina said...

Okay… I think I can do this one. This looks more up my alley as far as what I can afford and already have. I wouldn’t mind making the cupcakes and brownies from scratch though. Mmmm…. NOMS! Now… to try and make sugar free cupcake brownie burgers. Hmmm…

I just wanted to thank you for posting this idea! I made them tonight for a BBQ with my parents and they were a hit! So easy to make…and sooo yummy!!! Every cupcake should have a brownie in the middle!! Thanks!

So very cute! Wish I had that kind of patience for stuff…although I would have trimmed the brown edges off the first cupcakes long before I would have baked 2 doz. more! LOL! Great job!!

Nikki said...

These are adorable! LOVE the “fries”!

Anyone looking for an even faster tiny SWEET burger, try this:

Nilla Wafers for the buns
Peppermint Patties for the burger
Frosting for ketchup/mustard
Green (food coloring) coconut for lettuce
And add sesame seed with a little water, as described above.

Just put your bottom “bun” and peppermint patty in the oven for a minute or so to melt the chocolate to the cookie. Then assemble and squish a little to adhere the layers.

Kids can even help!

I actually laughed out loud while reading what to do with the brownie leftovers. I think this would be amazing for my husband, if only he’d stay out of the house long enough for me to make them as a surprise!

These are adorable! I’m thinking about trying them out for 4th of July. :)

I love making cupcakes from scratch, don’t get me wrong! But I see absolutely nothing wrong with using a mix once in a while. I like to save the time consuming mixing and measuring for more complex flavor combinations.

They usually use pretty high quality ingredients in the boxed stuff and they’re basically fool proof, so they’re great in a pinch especially when you want to spend more time decorating than baking.

I made these for our school’s end of the year “Summer Jam” bake sale. They were very easy. One hint is to use a cake torter to slice the cupcakes evenly. I didn’t make the fries this time, but I was thinking about what could be used for ketchup. Saw the strawberry jam idea, any others? Tinted vanilla pudding? Thank you, Bakerella!!

i finally made the cupcakes today. I couldn’t find a 2″ cookie cutter or biscuit cutter for the life of me (hobby lobby, joanns, walmart, and so on) but I had a 2″ tin that held some reallly tiny fondant shape cutters so it ended up working out…didn’t have to use the cup cake pans as planned. once i put the top bun on you could see the “lettuce” or “mustard” as well or at all. guess i should have looped it down further on the brownie.

I am going to use these as my centerpiece along with a bottle of Coca-cola on a tray for my 50′s themed recognition. Each placesetting is going to have a “soda” made out of crinkled paper with a pink carnation on the top with a red rose bud as the cherry. I think this will look just super.

Megan said...

I’ve made these at least 10 times now. I love serving a small (jello-shot) sized cup of red frosting -aka ketchup- in the basket.

I always use coconut for lettuce and real sesame seeds, looks the most realistic. I prefer the look of the cupcake/bun without the liner indents..but its just so much easier to peel off papers than dig out cupcakes that might be burnt.

A tip- freeze the cupcakes and brownies before cutting them. They’re way less crumbly and less sticky during assembly.

Thanks for the tutorial!

I have also done from scratch, and yes it does taste better, but not that much after improving the box mix. I have a 2 year old, he needs my time more than a from scratch mix. So boxes it is until more time presents itself!

I made these burgers for my sons 6th birthday party at Hungry Jacks (Burger King in America). The kids absolutely loved them and gave me a 25 out of 10.. All the staff at the store had to stop by and have a look and wanted the recipe. i told them to check out your website.. Thank you for such a brilliant site and I have all ready been looking for your book in Australia. As for pre-mixes I use them all the time and it doesnt affect the taste (with 4 kids, starting from scratch is tooo time consuming!)

These were such a hit at my son’s birthday party. I bought some paper burger clamshell trays from a local burger place because I didn’t want to make the trays. I made the fry packages out of regular paper, which worked fine. Also, my brownie circles didn’t come out so well, so I ended up making brownie patties, just like making a hamburger patty. It actually looked even more realistic! Here’s a not-so-good picture. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v143/kgsd1/Burgercupcakes002.jpg

Oh goodness these are the cutest things I’ve ever seen! Are they sickeningly sweet though?

I love boxed mixes because I don’t have lots of time to bake from scratch, but I always make my own frosting, canned ones are usually too sweet for me.

Thanks for the rolling pin rubber bands link! That will be super helpful for my next batch of cut out sugar cookies!

My mom has a couple of books from the cake mix doctor, I have the cupcake book. We can take a mix and make it taste homemade.

I love this. Betty Crocker recently posted about how to do this with cookies. Would you mind if I feature your blog and some of your photos in an upcoming post?

I made these today – sooooooo easy….and so adorable. They came out just like the picture…for the french fries however I used a pound cake and a crinkle cut knife and did a small paper cup of red frosting in the tray for “ketchup! …I got RAVE reviews from everyone – they not only look great they taste great too!

I completely became OBSESSED with these when I found them. However, I didn’t get a chance to make them for like a month (so sad). But when I finally did, I quasi-adjusted the recipe and made them into what I like to call “brownie slider cupcakes”.

Check it out:

And thanks for the inspiration! You’re AMAZING, Bakerella!

When I made these I didn’t have time to let the brownies cool for a couple of hours. As I was getting them out of the pan they were coming apart. I decided to press them a little flatter and shape them by hand. They were not as fluffy but they looked more like real hamburgers. The kids loved them. My children along with others now request that I bring the burgers everywhere. They love them!

I am definitely refuse it… just because you can do a zillion times more flavors from scratch.

I made these last year for the fathers in our church for Father’s Day. They were a huge success! I made a few changes of my own, such as coloring coconut flakes green to resemble shredded lettuce and making fondant that I colored yellowish orange and rolled out and cut into squares for cheese for the burgers. I also baked the brownie patties in my muffin tin and that worked out great! No scraps (although I wouldn’t complain about eating the scraps!) and the edges were nice and smooth and the exact size as the cupcakes. One more change I made was I used a crinkle cutter to cut out the sugar cookie fries. This was a very fun project for me. :-)

I made these for our Women’s Missionary Society meeting this month (I was the hostess). I did a picnic theme menu. Hot dogs, baked beans and potato salad. You know, all the thing you would have on a spring picnic. I served these for dessert and the ladies went wild for them! I had several ladies who thought they weren’t real, that they were party favors. Thanks for the great idea. Now I have people wanting me to make them some for an upcoming party-for money! Yea!

I bought the cake -pop cookbook recently and wanted to make some cake-pops for our family reunion, in a couple of weeks. I have looked through the book and also on your website to see if my answer could be found there. No luck, unless I’m blind. Anyway, I am not able to make the cakes and balls just before the party. Can I make them ahead and freeze them? (as they would have to be made to far in advance to just keep them in the fridge.) I know that they would have to be thawed to a point. Any suggestions? Thank-you….. My family will love the cake-pops!

I am glad that a fellow serious baker sees the merit in mixes. Sigh. I love recipes from scratch, but mixes allow us to spend more time focusing on the fun part! You are my kind of baker!
