Happy Meals… Cupcake Replay

Brownie Burger Cupcakes & Cookie Fries [1]

Father’s Day isn’t too far away and I wanted to do a little replay of a fun project from almost four years ago. Yikes, that’s weird to say. Or type. Sometimes I can’t believe how long I’ve been baking and posting treats here. And that I still love every minute of it. This project goes so far back on the site, I thought it would be fun to share again for new readers because it’s one of my favorites. And it’s one I remember being so giddy over as it all came together in my kitchen.

I think it was the french fry cookies that sent me over the top. I love how they turned out.

Sugar cookies for fries and sugar for salt. So sweet!

But the other part I love about this project is the presentation. I made templates for the paper tray, printed tissue and french fry containers… all for Father’s Day. It totally pulls the whole look together. And I promise you’ll fool people at first glance.

Here is the original Father’s Day Fast Food Fun post [6] with instructions. Make ’em and make dad happy!


And because so many of you loved these the first time around and wanted to make them for the Fourth of July, here are some new templates for the most requested events. Hope they come in handy! And there’s a blank french fry template if you want to fill in with your own phrase.

I’m lovin’ it.

Your meals made me happy!

Oh and if you decide to make these for the Fourth, you could go for the “full meal deal” … cupcakes disguised as snow cones would so be an over-the-top way to cap off your cookout.
