You Can't Spell Summer Without B-B-Q!!

Aren't these mini barbeques the cutest!? My future sister in law, Shevon, told me to check this recipe out. She found it on the Family Fun magazine website and I am so glad i did! With help from my little sister Madison and my friend Karina these little barbeques turned out great!

The cupcakes are actually brownies in cupcake liners! I used Betty Crocker brownie mix. The grate is white frosting mixed with some black food coloring. I used red and yellow sprinkles for the charcoal. The hot dogs are hot tamales and the grill marks were made with black food coloring and applied with a toothpick. The kabobs are caramels and Dots cut into pieces held together by a toothpick. And lastly the chicken (or pork chop) is a caramel molded into the shape with a little white frosting used for the bone.

Tell me what you think!


  1. Once again you make another little work of art!! They look great Mir!!:)

  2. Those turned out great! I love your pork chop, it's so cute. And the chicken on the skewers looks like real chicken from where I'm sitting! Bravo! Were they delicious?

  3. Thank you thank you!

    Shevon- Thanks again for the idea! I couldn't bring myself to eat these ones but the normal brownie cupcakes were yummy!
