Internet is an amazing place for finding the most interesting, innovative products you would probably never see in most stores. I thoroughly enjoy browsing through companies of interest and discovering the newest products. Today’s topic is baking. Do you love to bake? I know I do, even though I rarely do it. On the menu today are hamburger cupcakes!
Ever heard of Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves
? The idea of these sleeves is to transform regular cupcakes into anything you can imagine, such as hamburgers, popcorn or even sushi rolls. I was curious to review a set and received the Lil’ Burger
decorative sleeves for my review. They come in a dozen and are designed to fit a standard size cupcake.
So why would you want a set of Roundabouts? Main reason for me is to get it for the kids. They go crazy over anything unusual. I think it would be an amazing addition to a birthday party to decorate cupcakes as something funky like pirates. And who needs a birthday cake when you can have cool individual cupcakes? I have yet to throw my son a party since he’s still a baby, but I’ll keep these in mind for the future. I think he’ll enjoy some “fire trucks” on his plate.
I didn’t realize that I needed to bake cup cakes in paper cupcake liners. I’m on a bit of a tight budget for spending and wasn’t able to get any at the moment. I wasn’t sure if this is a must-do step or not, and decided to save these sleeves until I can make them properly. This is actually great, as I’ll have a chance to surprise someone with these on a special occasion. I have lots of kids’ birthdays coming up and can’t wait to make these little “burgers” for someone’s special day.
If you are wondering how to decorate cupcakes to get them just right. Well, there’s no right or wrong. You can use your own imagination! But if (like me) you don’t have much of an imagination when it comes to decorating, you can use a quick instructions list included in the package. I learned that to make brown frosting for a burger cupcake you will need to mix vanilla frosting with yellow, red and blue food colorings in a ratio of 5:2:1. Sounds easy enough to me!
Here are some cool sleeves which caught my attention. I really like the pirate styled one.
