Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4.

Decorating Instructions:

Step 7

Once the cupcakes have cooled, remove each from the paper cases used to bake them in.

Step 8

Cut in half carefully with a sharp serrated knife.

Step 9

Knead and roll out the Renshaw Lincoln Green Ready to Roll Icing on a work surface lightly dusted with icing sugar. Using a fluted cookie cutter slightly larger in size than your cupcakes, cut out twelve circular shapes to create your burger lettuce.

Step 10

On the base half of each cupcake, apply a small amount of Renshaw Chocolate Frosting and stick the green icing lettuce on top.

Step 11

Pipe a round circle of Renshaw Chocolate Flavour Frosting on top of the green icing lettuce to create the burger.

Step 12

Colour the Royal Icing with small drops of Rainbow Dust ProGels and fill into separate piping bags. Pipe on to the frosting to create Ketchup and Mustard.

Step 13

Take the top half of each cupcake and sandwich on top of the piped icing.
