Hump Day Snack: BBQ Cupcakes for Father’s Day

Barbecue Cupcakes

If your dad’s perfect Father’s Day is spent lording over an open flame with beer in hand, honor him with one of the manliest treats around: a frosted cupcake. Kidding aside, these aren’t just any cupcakes. They’re flame-jumping, steak-searing, barbecue-revering replicas of a piping hot grill. After baking classic chocolate cupcake recipe, spear some gummy kebabs and mini chocolate “patties” over a flaming twirl of orange frosting flames. It’s a mighty fitting end to a day of grilling.
