Step 1: Easy as ‘Bun’, Two, Three

Gently slice the tops off of each vanilla cupcake to form the buns. Make sure it’s an even, horizontal cut, or else you’re in for a topsy-turvy burger!

Do the same with the chocolate cupcakes, but put their cupcake tops aside. You’ll only need the bottom halves for your patties, but those extra chocolate tops are certainly snack-worthy!


Step 2: Time for Toppings

After placing your chocolate sections on the bottom vanilla buns, let the condiments commence! Drizzle red icing for a ketchup-inspired base, yellow icing for mustard, and a thick layer of green icing as lettuce. The more icing, the better!

Step 3: The Finishing Touch

Place your vanilla cupcake tops on your freshly-iced patties, then sprinkle a light layer of sesame seeds atop your bun for darling detail.


Put it all together, and what do you get? The most adorable burger you’ve ever laid eyes on!
