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.


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.


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.


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.


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……


… You’ll figure something out.

Next up. Frostings.


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.



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 did try these with a 6 inch cake and the frozen sugar cookies and must say they were easy to make since you made them so easy.. my husband was travelling and coming home on his bday.. I always bake him a cake.. but this year wanted to see if I could make this one…it was so easy…Thanks for that…I did make the Mango cake.. added mango puree concentrate in a yellow box mix instead of water.. and cut into 3 layers.. and frosted the center layer with choc. ganache and used cream cheese frosting for the other two layers….all in all..hubby and kids were super impressed and won some cool extra points for me….God bless you with a long and healthy life.

SO I tried the cupcakes and they came out perfect. I wanted to try someting different for the fries so I made Churros, smaller than the traditonal size. Because they are deep fried and you can put sugar on them they actually look like french fries. I am making these for the ladies at my work next week and I am also foing to add a small container of caramel or chocolate to replicate grazy for dipping the churros in. They were so easy to make. I found this simple recipie on line at : Courtesy of Delia from Arizona.

Here is the recipie if you want to try it out. Once complete I hope to post some pictures. Thanks Bakerella for the inspiration.

1 cup water
2 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 quarts oil for frying
1/2 cup white sugar, or to taste 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine water, 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in flour until mixture forms a ball.

Heat oil for frying in deep-fryer or deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Pipe strips of dough into hot oil using a pastry bag. Fry until golden; drain on paper towels.
Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll drained churros in cinnamon and sugar mixture.

Just picked up your Cake Pops book ovr the weekend and making a batch on monkey pops for a Paul Frank themed birthday party this Saturday.

These are so cute! Thank you for the great idea and wonderful instructions! I can”t wait to try and make them myself.
As for mixes vs. scratch~depends on the project. I have not however, found a scratch recipe for white cake that is as light as the box mixes.

Mmmmm….. I made these for father’s day and shared the left overs around my office. Boy was I POPULAR today, lol :). Thanks for the awesome (easy) recipe idea! I’m going to make these again as a treat for my daughter’s last week of school… that is, unless I find something even more fun to make!

June 21, 2011 12:08 AM
Lianne Ryan said...

I made these with my friends! I loved them, they were good. We sold them outside for a bake sale! It was really fun, a ton of people bought them, or complimented my friends and I on them. One flaw to them is that the took FOREVER to make, and we had a ton a cleaning to do!

I just came to your site to find a cupcake recipe to bring to my husband and his crew members at McDonalds for his birthday next week. These are so perfect!

Is there anyway that you could change to type from “Happy Fathers Day” to “Happy Birthday.” If so, I would SO appreciate it!

June 25, 2011 12:47 AM
Jenny said...

You have saved me today girl!! I was making “slider” cupcakes for a baby shower for friends who’s last name is Burger. I had the brilliant idea to add fries and serve them in little containers (Or i thought it was my idea!) Well when I tried to find the containers (at the last minute) I could not! I came across your post here and found your template! Thank you so much. You’re my inspiration today!!

June 25, 2011 07:20 PM
Francesca said...

Made these with my sister for Father’s Day! Took some pictures of them and from a little bit away it looked like we had a table full of hamburgers and fries! We dyed some shredded coconut green and used that has the “lettuce”. The fries were probably the most addicting part! Surprisingly this didn’t take too long to do which is always good. Another great idea!

I have made these several times and they never cease to make people smile! Thank you for the link to print the fry and burger holders :) They are always the “icing on the cake” so to speak.

Meg said...

These are so cute. I might make this for my bf some time (not Father’s Day ones obviously) He loves hamburgers and fries, and he loves my baking. So it would be best of both worlds for him.

I made the hamburger cupcakes for my daughter’s day camp bake sale… They were a HUGE hit! Sold out first and were sold at the highest price of $1.00 ea.

Everybody that has seen them were incredibly impressed….and I’ve given this link to many! Beautiful site…beautiful work AND a sense of humor.

Thank you for sharing!!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your mini burgers and fries!!! They look absolutely adorable! This is something I would definitely make. As far as mixes, I normally bake from scratch but if I had to, I would doctor it up using the WASC recipe.

Sara said...

I made them for my husband for his birthday. They weren’t as pretty as yours… but decent enough for a first go ’round. :o) Thank you for inspiring me. :o) I think this is going to be the beginning of a new hobby… attempting Bakerella’s masterpieces.

i’m from Sweden and i hope you can understand what i have write :)

I love your blog

Bea said...

I made these for Father’s Day. They were so yummy but they took ages! Because my Dad has to have all Gluten Free food, GF mixes are too expensive so I had to make all of it from scratch! :o But it was worth it since they turned out great! (Tip: If you don’t have Violet food colouring like me then adding a yellow to the red food colouring will give it a bit more of a dark reddy-orange look)

I made these this weekend and they came out adorable! The only thing was that I made the brownies in a 13×9 pan and it only have me 12 hamburger patties. The cupcake mix also only have me 18 cupcakes. Can you specify how you got 24 cupcakes and brownies? I don’t know what I did wrong besides maybe use a little too much cupcake batter for each cupcake.

October 10, 2011 03:42 PM
Marie M.C. said...

I use mixes. Such a convenience. I never use the canned frosting. I don’t use butter cream either. Way, way too much sugar. I use a mix of cream cheese and whipped cream. It tastes great and it’s firm enough to pipe. It won’t work for everything but I’m certain it would be fine for something ever so cute as these.

Here’s the recipe.
8 oz cream cheese (I use the block or whipped cream cheese.)
1/2 cup sugar (more or less to taste.)
1 teas. vanilla
2 cups of heavy cream (Try and find the kind that’s NOT ultra-pasteurized. The ultra-pasteurized takes forever to whip up.)

That’s it. If you are using the block cream cheese whip it up with the sugar, then add vanilla and cream. Add cream slowly to avoid splatters. This makes a ton of frosting so feel free to cut recipe in half.

Adore! My daughter’s drama class may do “Grease” this spring; I think these would be perfect for the concession stand. About the sugar cookie “fries” spreading – maybe a butter (shortbread) cookie dough would work better?

I just made these for a friend’s birthday and they turned out great! I had some extra icing so I made orange and spread it on the bottom bun for cheese. So glad I ran across this blog.

Oh, and how annoying for all these comments that are backhanded: “I don’t use mixes”, “I prefer to bake from scratch”, blah blah blaaaaaaah. Keep your baking ego in check and to yourself, this idea is adorable and you’re all lucky it was shared :)

I almost always use a cake mix for my cakes. Always Betty Crocker super moist mixes. They are genius in a box haha I made my sisters wedding cake, Two massive hearts, one choc, one vanilla covered in Ivory fondant and decorated with butterflies, roses, ribbon and vines and a proffessional cake maker asked me for my receipe as she loved it and wanted to try it (she was shocked it was from a box ;) )

Love these! I work at a bakery, but we don’t make cutesy things like this. We do make everything from scratch, so when I get home and wanna bake I use mixes. I make my own frosting though. And I definitely tinker with the mixes, yogurt, b-milk, creams, add egg yolks, etc.

Chef Stacy said...

These are so cute. I am definitely going to try these – but they’ll have to be gluten free :-) SO in answer to your question: scratch, mix, or dr the mix – even though gluten free and other allergen friendly mixes have come a long way in the almost 25 years I’ve been baking for family with food “issues”, I’m still a from scratch baker. I started decorating cakes just over two years ago and virtually everything I use is made from scratch in order to deal with both being Gluten Free and accommodating other allergens.

What an awesome idea to do for my daughter’s class. Was trying to think of something different when her birthday came around to share with her class and this will fit the bill perfectly.
And by the way, I prefer to do most of my baking by scratch so I know exactly what everybody is eating but in a pinch I use a box mix with only 12oz of any flavor pop desired and bake it. It’s fast, moist and very tasty. I have also done some experimenting with this by using fruit flavored soda and adding fruit to the top after baked and sugar free whipped topping. It’s always a big hit in our home. :0)

I love how you made sugar cookies and cupcakes look like real french fries and hamburgers. I thought of trying out the idea for my dad. You are so creative! :) I also tried making bunny cake pops for the first time. I loved how they turned out and I’m so glad I made them. I’ve decided to make more for mother’s day and I bet my mom would love them.

These burgers and fries are SO cute!! Personally I used to use mixes all the time…till SOY ruined my life….and taught me to use all scratch all the time. I have yet to find a cake recipe that I love, but am working on it!!

Wow, thank you so much for posting this ‘how to’ and the templates! I’m doing this for this father’s day. I’ve already printed all the material, and plan to make the fries today. If only my baby girl would fall asleep!

Hello. These are adorable. I have a question, I am trying to make these right now and its not working. When I cut the cupcakes and start putting it all together it crumbs. Any tips?

I made these yesterday! I agree it’s better to spread out the work. I couldn’t find the red color you suggested so I used Wilton no taste red with violet and it did the trick! Thanks for sharing!

I made these for Fathers’ Day. They turned out adorably and tasted good, too. I will definitely be using this idea for my greatgrand’s birthday in October. Thanks soooo much for sharing.
