Hamburger Cupcakes


Hello fellow gamers. One of the best foods around is, of course, the hamburger. You can do so much with a single patty (grill it, broil it, bake it, season it, marinate it…) and it always turns out delicious! The hamburger also shows up quite regularly in many video games. It is one of the first foods that your Sim learns how to make in any of The Sims games, and in 1982 there was a slightly addicting game called Burgertime (you can play it here for free: My recipe today incorporated the hamburger into another pretty delicious food item, the cupcake!

  • one box yellow cake mix
  • one box chocolate cake mix
  • one container of white frosting
  • yellow, red, and green food coloring
  • sesame seeds (optional)
  • sandwich pick


Bake the yellow cake mix as directed on the box in a cupcake pan with cupcake liners. Then bake the chocolate cake as directed on the box in a square or rectangular cake pan. While the cake are cooling, separate the white frosting into three empty bowls and color them red, green and yellow (so signify ketchup, mustard, and lettuce). Once the cupcakes have cooled completely, remove them carefully from the liners and cut them in half. Then, cut out circles from the chocolate cake mix, just big enough to fit in between the yellow cupcakes. Place the chocolate cake circle on the bottom half of the yellow cake, and then frost the chocolate cake, then add the top of the yellow cake. Add sesame seeds (if desired) and insert the sandwich pick to hold it all together.
