So I bookmarked these little cuties last summer, but never had an opportunity to make them. This year when we were invited to a Memorial Day festivity, I knew just what to bring. These were easy to make and put together. You can bake the cupcakes and brownies in advance and then decorate them the next day. And if you like brownies and cupcakes, what's not to love about these adorable sliders.

What you will need:
1 batch of brownies (I used a box mix.)
1 batch of yellow cupcakes
1 batch vanilla buttercream tinted red, yellow, and green
sesame seeds (optional)
1 yellow box mix
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line a cupcake tin with 24 cupcake liners.
Mix all ingredients with a hand mixer on low for 30 seconds then on high for 2 minutes.
Fill cupcake liners about 3/4 full and bake for 15 - 20 minutes.
Cool cupcakes for a few minutes in the pans, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
2 sticks of butter
6 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
