Hamburger Cupcakes

These cupcakes are so cute and also fun to make.  I make them every year for our Father's Day cook-out.  They are always devoured by the end of the day.  They look like real hamburger sliders!  :)

1 box yellow cake mix
Chocolate frosting
Yellow cake icing (I used a Betty Crocker one - comes in a bottle with all the tips you need to pipe it on because I don't know how to pipe icing on my own, lol)
Red cake icing (same as the yellow)
Green food coloring (only a few drops)
Sweetened shredded coconut
Sesame seeds (to make it resemble a kaiser roll.)

1.  Make cupcakes according to box directions.   BEFORE baking, sprinkle sesame seeds on top of each cupcake.

2.  Put about 2 cups of your shredded coconut in a bowl.  Add a few drops of the green food coloring and mix well.  It's supposed to resemble lettuce so you can add more if you like.  Stir with a fork until it is evenly covered.

3.  Once cupcakes are done, remove from pan and let cool COMPLETELY on wax paper or cooling rack. 

4.  Once cool, remove the cupcake wrappers.

5.  Cut the cupcakes in half with a plastic knife - but leave a little MORE OF THE BOTTOM half than the top when you cut through. 

6.  Add the chocolate frosting to the bottom half, sprinkle with the green coconut and then add some of the red & yellow icing to resemble ketchup and mustard. 

7.  LIGHTLY place the top half of the cupcake on (don't press down).   Enjoy!
