Cupcake Sliders?!

I have been super busy lately with work, sewing, showers & my sister-in-law's wedding. I feel like I haven't got to be cupcake creative in forever & I have so many ideas built up in my head! I decided that I was just going to make time to make it happen this week! It ended up working out perfect since I got the baby shower cupcake order for Archie. It is way easier to bake some extras for fun when you already have everything pulled out & going! The idea for these hamburger cupcakes & sugar cookie french fries came from one of my favorite blogs- Bakerella. I saw them here on her blog almost 6 months ago!
The "buns" are extra strawberry cupcakes from the Archie order. The "meat" is a brownie! Add some orange food coloring (I was out of yellow) for cheese, green for lettuce & red for ketchup, & you have a cupcake slider!

The french fried are sugar cookies! As a side note- I decided to do this last minute yesterday at lunch so I thought, let's be easy & grab the pre-made sugar cookie mix. BIG mistake! I have never worked with pre-made before & never will again! It took me more time to get the dough rolled out then it would have taken me to make my own!! Okay, back to the fries- see the "salt", it's sugar of course! Let me tell you, just like real french fries, these were addicting!
We ended up making 9 hamburgers. 2 went to the neighbors, 1 with me to work today & the rest with Drew to school. What am I going to do with all our left over goodies during the summer?!

I got a little carried away with my ingredients, but I wanted to make sure you could see them when the top bun was on!
Table for two?
Okay, so as a disclaimer if you actually tried one of these this go around, Drew & I are pretty sure it wasn't a great flavor combination. Chocolate brownie, strawberry cupcakes, green homemade icing, with red & orange store bought icing. I was just trying to use what I had & not run to Kroger!! Sorry!

I have 6 more strawberry cupcakes sitting at my house waiting on me for tonight. Going to do something with margarita glasses! Get excited, pictures hopefully tomorrow!


  1. Those are so stinking adorable and they look so real!

  2. Hi Kelly!

    I've been one of the lucky recipients of the "leftovers" this school year, and I'm going to miss you this summer! These little sliders were just as cute in person! I disassembled mine to eat it, and how can brownies covered in icing be bad?? Also, the pretty cookies were a big hit on the last day of school. Thank you so much for sharing them with us! I'm about to pop out a couple of babies, so I won't be back at school until November--can't wait to see what you're up to then! Thank you! Kristi Sikes
