Is That for Here or To Go?

Its so fun having a kid in kindergarten. Bringing birthday treats to school was something Avery and I were both excited about.

Here on the North Shore things are pretty relaxed. Homemade treats are still allowed. They can be sugary too! So there really weren't any limits. Avery chose these awesome hamburger and french fry cupcakes.

I put them in little paper tray I found at Longs with a square of parchment paper.

The "bun" is a yellow cup cake cut in half with a few sesame seeds sprinkled on.

The "burger" is just a brownie cut with a 2 inch-ish cookie cutter. Its kind of gross because it really looks like beef! But the scraps were delish!!

The "condiments" are simply colored frosting I made myself. (Are you annoyed by my "" yet?)

The fries were cute and so tasty. I used a packaged sugar cookie mix. I followed instructions for cut out cookies and made one big flat cookie. After it cooked I sprinkled it with sugar and cut the fry shapes with a knife while the cookie was still hot. Then after it cooled I broke it up!

They took me ALL MORNING! I thought it would be a simple project. It was easy, but there are a million steps. And I used a million dishes.

But they were worth it. The kids freaked out!
I highly recommend burger and fries for your next birthday!
Happy Birthday to my big 5 year old!!

I love these!! So cute. I am jealous you can still bring homemade treats, that's a no-no at Michael's school.
