8.Add one teaspoon of hamburger to the middle of every cupcake (120g total).
9.Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the highest of the cupcake is golden (unfortunately the skewer test didn't work because the center of the meat was ground).
10.Place it on a cooling rack to chill while you prepare the butter cream.
11.Prepare the buttercream by beating 75g of butter until smooth. Add powdered sugar (75g) one tablespoon at a time (as this helps keep the sugar from flying everywhere the place) and beat until well combined.
