Father's Day Cupcakes

I made these cute as can be cupcakes for Father's Day last year with all of my nieces!

 

I wanted to do something that was super easy and most of all.....fun! We baked cupcakes together, and then I let them cover them with chocolate icing on top. We piped black lines to resemble grill marks across the cupcakes. I let them decorate the cupcakes with pieces of candy that looked very close to some meat thrown on the grill. We then took toothpicks and added sugar coated gummy candies that favored a kabob! We added a quick touch of grilled black lines to some of the candy (meat) and gave it that final grilled look! We made plenty of extra for the girls to sample!




 We displayed several on platters Father's Day for everyone to enjoy.



 
 
 
 
 
 I bought some stickers that had some cute Father's Day sayings and we put the cupcakes in bakery boxes for all our special dads in our family to take home with them as a treat! I am looking forward to celebrating with all of the Dad's in our family this weekend! We have a full day planned and a menu to cook!
Here is a pic of my hubby and kiddos! He is the best dad in the world to our two children! I am forever thankful for the way he has been such a Godly father for my kids to grow up under! He is truly my best friend!
 
 


 I added a few pics of my dad! He is the best father in the whole world! He has always been there for me! He sets such an example of unconditional love for me and my three sisters. I love him to the moon and back!
 
 
 
 
 
Happy Father's Day!
