This weekend was mine and my little Man's Birthday weekend. It was a weekend full of eating and family. As mentioned in preivious posts, my son and I share the same birthday. His birthday this year is a milestone. He turned 1. So most of my focus was on his birthday. Anyway, who wants to celebrate turning *cough* thirty something *cough*
I decided to make Hamburger cupcakes for him. I saw these more than a year ago and have been wanting to me them since. I made them last week for my nephew/Godson. You can see pics here. Hubby suggested that I make them again for Thomas this week.
I made it easy on myself and used cake mixes and pre-made fondant icing. I used orange flavoured cake for the buns, brownies for the meat pattie, butter icing coloured green for the lettuce and strawberry jam for the tomato sauce. By all means, make your cake from scratch along with the icing but the assembling the "hamburger" was the enjoyable part.
It was fun to make but the best part was seeing people's faces when the cupcakes were revealed. I made a larger one for my son's first taste of cake. He managed to eat most of it. It was joy to watch.
Happy 1st Birthday Thomas!
