  • 1 cupcake
  • Handful of tootsie rolls
  • Yellow taffy
  • Red gumdrops
  • Green fruit-leather


  • Sugar cookie dough

For the burger: Cut a cupcake in half horizontally. Shape a handful of Tootsie Rolls into a round "patty." Using a rolling pin, flatten yellow taffy into a square of "cheese." Flatten red gumdrops and cut out "tomatoes" with a cookie cutter. Add green fruit-leather "lettuce" to the cupcake base; top with the patty, cheese and tomatoes. Cover with the cupcake bun.

For the fries: Roll out sugar cookie dough 1/2 inch thick and cut into strips. Place on a baking sheet and sprinkle with white sanding sugar. Bake according to package directions and let cool.
