  • Divide buttercream evenly between three bowls. To one bowl, add 1/4 teaspoon green food coloring and 2 drops yellow food coloring; mix well to combine. To the second bowl, add 1/2 teaspoon yellow food coloring and 1 drop red food coloring; mix well to combine. To the third bowl, add 1 teaspoon red food coloring and 1 drop blue food coloring; mix well to combine.

  • Transfer each colored buttercream to a resealable plastic bag. Snip a 1/4-inch opening from one bottom corner of each plastic bag. Using the yellow buttercream, pipe a large hollow square on each brownie. Using the red buttercream, pipe a circle in the center of the square. Top with a squiggle of the green buttercream over the red circle.

  • Brush reserved top halves of cupcakes lightly with water. Sprinkle with nonpareils, pressing to adhere. Top frosted brownies with cupcake tops to create cupcake burgers.

  • Preheat broiler.

  • Using a crinkle-cut knife, slice pound cake into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Cut each slice into a 1/2-inch-thick strip. Place pound cake strips on a baking sheet and transfer to broiler. Broil until golden and toasted, 30 seconds. Drizzle pound cake fries with red buttercream and serve with hamburger cupcakes.

I have not tried this recipe, but these cupcakes are the cutest thing I have seen. I look forward to making them with my granddaughter. Great idea. I may do the fries, just because. Thanks.
