Slider Cupcakes

I made these yummy cupcake treats for Fourth of July. Very festive and fun!! It is super easy to make, but very time consuming. Here are the directions if you'd like to give it a try :)

1 box yellow cake mix
1 box chocolate cake mix
1 can of white frosting
red food coloring
yellow fondant (cheese)
green fondant (lettuce)
sesame seeds

Bake both cakes mixes according to the box
while cooling make cheese squares out of yellow fondant (roll out fondant very thin)
roll out green fondant very thin and slice/cut it into tiny pieces. (I used a pizza slicer)
In a separate bowl dye the white frosting red (I only used about 1/4 of the can of frosting)

Cut the yellow cupcakes just below the top of the cupcake
To apply the sesame seeds pour onto plate and dip the tops of the "buns" in the sesame seeds
Cut the chocolate cupcakes into thirds (I discarded the very tips of the cupcakes)
Frost the bottom half of the yellow cake very thin
Place the chocolate "burger" on top of the frosting
Place a piece of "cheese" on the "burger"
Place the "lettuce" on top of the "cheese"
And then top it off with the top of the "bun"
Stick a toothpick in all of them for the final touch

Ad there you have it! A Slider dessert!
