Foodista: Mini Cupcake Sliders

Mini Cupcake Sliders

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I wanted to share our family’s Friday night baking session with you. We decided to get creative in the kitchen, and made these adorable (and absolutely delicious) Mini Slider Cupcakes. The “buns” of the sliders are vanilla cupcakes and the “beef patty” is a brownie. We then made “condiments” out of cream cheese frosting mixed with some food coloring. And voila… cute cupcakes that look like mini burgers! Make sure to check out the full recipe below.

And for any Sponge Bob fans (my kids!)… these are also known as Sponge Bob’s famous Krabby Patties! The kids and I had the best time making these. SO tasty, and so much fun to make.

Here’s the recipe:

Mini Slider Cupcakes aka Krabby Patties


  • 12 yellow cake cupcakes
  • 1 batch brownies
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Red, Yellow, and Green food coloring
  • Light corn syrup
  • Sesame seeds


  1. Cut cupcakes in half horizontally and set aside.
  2. Using a 2-inch round cookie cutter, cut 12 circles from brownies.
  3. Place a brownie patty on each cupcake bottom.
  4. Divide frosting equally into 3 small bowls.
  5. Using food coloring tint red, yellow, and green frosting.
  6. Place tinted frostings into disposable decorating bags or plastic storage bags. Use decorating tips or snip the corners of bags to make a small hole.
  7. Pipe a zigzag of green frosting around the edge of each brownie patty for lettuce. Next pipe red for Ketchup. And, finally, pipe yellow for mustard.
  8. Place cupcake tops on.
  9. Brush cupcake tops with corn syrup.
  10. Sprinkle with sesame seeds

*Makes 12 cupcakes

    How about fun sushi ! Rice Krispies treats, rolled up in a fruit roll up, you can add Swedish fish or string licorice in the middle. It’s a fav in my house

    You could use coconut flakes with a little green food coloring to make the lettuce evn more realistic

    Pick up, Hello, Cupcake; What’s New, Cupcake; & Cupcakes, Cookies & Pie! Oh my! They have the cutest recipes for things just like your spiders (auto corrected slider, but they have those too!)! Popcorn, a clambake, corn on the cob; plus adorable themed projects for holidays!! {I’m about 99% sure you already have these, but hey you never know!}
    This is my first comment since my cousin turned me on to the site and I just want to say how much I love it, and how awesome I think you are. I was never a Tori Spelling hater, just didn’t know much about you or had an opinion. But I’ve learned that you are waaay more than a gorgeous face. Multi-talented & creative, a FIERCE mother – in every way, & admirably determined. Most of all, which you’ve demonstrated in the last few weeks, incredibly classy & courageous. Good luck, Tori. No one needs to worry, whatever the outcome Tori Spelling-McDermott will be just fine. You’re a fighter & it’ll take more than this to knock you out. Keep on, keepin’ on pretty lady! You are a braveista too!

    {I’m sure Tori doesn’t read these, can’t imagine how she would have the time! But if I could beg the admin to maybe pass this along, I just have been thinking of her & her family so much lately I just wish I could tell her this. If not I get it and its definitely a close second to just say it onher site where I can just imagine she saw it!}

  • Erica
