How about a burger and a shake...cupcake?  These make great summer treats!  I decided to add a level of difficulty by adding instructions on how to actually bake in your bbq grill.

Step 1: Gather your Ingredients

Since it seems like every instructable I see has a photo of ingredients, here is the requisite photo.

You'll need
Yellow Cake Mix (Bun)
Chocolate Cake Mix (Burger and chocolate Shake)
6 Eggs
Sesame Seeds
Strawberry (Tomato)
Apple (Red Onion)
Peach (Cheese)
Mint Leaves (Lettuce)
Lemon or lime (to keep fruit from browning)

Aluminum cupcake liners (this way you don't need a muffin tin)
Party Picks (to test the cupcakes and also to hold them together)
A straw

To make the whipped cream for the shakes
Whipped Topping 
Cream Cheese
Powdered Sugar

Missing are water, straw, and sesame seeds.

Step 2: Preheat Grill/Oven and Prepare the Cake Mix

Here is where you'd normally preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  At this point, I turned on the grill and let it get hot while I was preparing the batter.

Make both the yellow and chocolate cake mixes as according to the directions on the box.

Use a tablespoon and spatula to carefully fill your cupcake liners.  I used about 3.5 heaping tablespoons to fill these.  They were a wee bit too full.  I recommend going scant on this so they don't overflow.  In either case it doesn't really matter as you will be cutting these up, but it is less wasteful if you don't fill them too full.  Go 1/2 to 2/3 full.

Step 3: Put your Cakes on the Grill

Lay aluminum foil on the grill so your cupcakes don't tip.

I preheated only one side of the grill and placed the cupcakes on the other side so the bottoms wouldn't get scorched.

Use a spatula to transfer the cupcakes from the plate to the grill.

Close the lid and wait 20 minutes.

At this point I like to go and wash all of my bowls etc to kill 20 minutes or so.
thats sooo cool that you actually made them ON the grill!!
