Hamburger Cupcakes

One of my goals for this year was try more fun desserts for my YouTube channel!  So I was searching around google and I came across a picture similar to this and  thought to myself I have to try this!

Watch the video:

I had a little trouble with frosting the cupcakes because the piping bags I used, which were Wilton piping bags had holes!  On top of that, I accidentally picked up the wrong cake box mix so these cupcakes were very  moist!  Honestly whenever I film, whatever can go wrong will go wrong.  When I took out the cupcakes out of the oven, I was a little disappointed because the cupcakes were too yellow, maybe I should of used a different cake box mix.


I may have mentioned this before, but I am learning how to be a better food photographer.  After I took multiple pictures of the cupcake hamburgers, I decided it needs a little color!  I piped a red squiggle down the plate, but it was not uniformed so I just made the picture worse, haha.  Do you have any tips for garnishing the plate?
