Ya wanna know how to make ’em? Here’s what you’ll need:

For each HAMBURGER cupcake, you will need:
-1 cupcake
-1 Grasshopper cookie
-2 Nilla Wafers
-Sesame Seeds
-Orange juice concentrate
-Shredded coconut

-Shredded coconut
-Green food coloring

Here’s how to make the HAMBURGER cupcakes…

2. Dye about 1/2 cup shredded coconut green…green enough to look like lettuce
3. Slice the green gumdrop into slivers to be the pickles
4. Dye about 1/2 cup icing red…red enough to look like mustard
5. Frost your cupcakes with this delicious icing…https://byuflamingo.wordpress.com/2012/05/06/buttercream-icing/ (at this point you would sprinkle some sprinkles on top of you would like…I simply forgot!)
6. Put a Nilla wafer on upside-down. This will be your bottom bun.
7. Pipe yellow icing onto the outline to look like mustard.

8. Place the Grasshopper cookie on for the meat patty.
9. Pipe yellow icing on to stick on the pickles (gumdrop slices) and lettuce (green shredded coconut).
10. Get a Nilla wafer…use your finger to spread orange juice concentrate on top of it. That makes it sticky so the sesame seeds will stick to it. 
11. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top of the Nilla wafer. This is your top bun.
12. Place your bun on top 
13. Share with your friends and family!

Here’s how to make the HOTDOG cupcakes…
1. Make a slit in the circus peanut. Not all the way through. Just so it can open like a hotdog bun.
2.Heat up the caramels for a few seconds until they are soft enough to mold into a hotdog.
3. Put the hotdog inside the hotdog bun
4. Pipe some yellow icing on top for mustard
5. Chop up some of the green shredded coconut so it looks like relish
6. Sprinkle some of the relish on top of the hotdog.
7. Ice the cupcake
8. Sprinkle with some colorful sprinkles if you wish
9. Put the hotdog on top!
10. Share with your friends and family!

Easter Bunny Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes for Easter!

Wanna make them, too?

You will need….


Icing (https://byuflamingo.wordpress.com/2012/05/06/buttercream-icing/)

Mini M&M’s (2 per cupcake)

Mini marshmallows (2 per cupcake)

Large marshmallows (1 per cupcake)

Shredded cocunut

Pink sugar sprinkles

Black writing gel icing

Pink jellybeans (1 per cupcake)

Once you’ve got all that stuff, you will…

1. Make the cupcakes! I always like Funfetti.

2. Ice the cupcake

3. Dip the cupcake into a bowl full of shredded coconut.

Now you have bunny fur!

4. Cut the large marshmallow in half on the rounded side

This will give you the ears!

5. Dip the sticky part of the marshmallow into the pink sugar sprinkles

You now have cute little bunny ears!

6. Put a bit of icing on the back of the ears to put it onto the cupcake.

7. Put a pink jelly bean on for the nose.

8. Put on two mini M&M’s for the eyes

9. Put some icing on the mini marshmallows before putting them below the nose on the bunny.

As a side note, make sure the marshmallows are the same size…this is not ideal:

10. Put little black dots on the mini M&M’s for pupils!

11. If you want, you can use the black icing for whiskers. I didn’t like it, but if you do, go ahead!

I decided that I only like using blue and green for eyes…red looks evil.

Moral of the story: these are great for Easter!
