“Juicy Lucy” Cupcakes

As prepared by Michelle P,

Ever had a Juicy Lucy?

We all know there’s nothing better than a burger.  Unless it’s a Juicy Lucy, which one-ups a regular burger as it is two patties stuffed with a hot gooey, cheesy center (Beware: That first bite can be dangerous!).  It sounds odd to the uninitiated, but the Juicy Lucy is truly a burger graduated to the proverbial next level.

So it’s easy to see then, how the new Fun-da-middle cupcakes, with their ingenious creamy filling, could take the Burger CUPCAKE to a completely new and previously unimagined realm.  The “Juicy Lucy” Burger Cupcake is everything that you would expect in its less-adorned bretheren – a faux “bun” studded with sesame seeds and a stylized application of various icings and colored coconut for visual tomfoolery.  The filling adds both the “juicy” and the “lucy”!  So let’s ask the question a different way - what could be more fun than a tiny burger cupcake?  A “Juicy Lucy” Burger Cupcake, that’s what!

The best part – this is super easy.  Prepare the Fun-da-middles according to package directions (I used the yellow cake/white filling mix.).  Sprinkle with sesame seeds.  Bake as directed.  Let the cupcakes cool completely then remove the paper wrappers.

Place (don’t press) a “top bun” on each frosted bottom half.  Refrigerate the cupcakes until 20 minutes to serving time.  (Keeping the cupcakes cold will help the frosting maintain its shape – otherwise the burgers can compress and look a bit flat and melty!).
