It has been two years since I first introduced Paityn to YouTube, and YouTube to Paityn.
We started off filming with her as a birthday gift from her parents, Birthday Cake Surprise, last year we filmed cute Rainbow Ice Cream Cone Cake Pops, and Macarons, and now this year I had her show me how to make one of her ideas. Paityn attends the same school that I teach at, and one day she had made these adorable hamburger cupcakes for her brother’s birthday, and as soon as she brought me one, I knew we had to film it for a video.
In the past two years, Paityn has grown and matured a tremendous amount. She’s also grown physically and no longer needs a stool hahahaha! She is one of the most talented, spunky kids I know- but she started out as a shy, quiet girl who I had to pull teeth to get to talk when we started filming. Now, I couldn’t get her to be quiet, and she took over my kitchen like she owned the place! I love this kid.
While Paityn was making these cupcakes, she used box mixes for the cupcakes and brownies. She suggests that using golden yellow cake mix is preferable over a white cake, as it looks more realistic and bun like. For the brownies, baking the mix worked best in a 9″x13″ pan in order for the brownies to be thinner than they would be if they were baked as according to the box directions.
For the french fries, I knew I had to have an idea to bring to show Paityn, so I made the french fries using pound cake and a crinkle cutter. Baking them under the broiler gives them the true fry look.
The recipe is super simple, and super fun to get creative with!
