Summer Cupcake Ideas
I love to theme a good cupcake recipe. For the summer think about ways you can incorporate grilling, the beach, or the pool into your designs. One of my most favorite cupcakes I have created are the Grill Cupcakes. I originally found this idea in a magazine years ago and had a lot of fun creating them for a Father’s Day cookout.
You can create a beached themed cupcake by incorporating crushed graham crackers for sand and adding a gummy fish or one of those cocktail umbrellas. The possibilities are endless.
To get your idea’s going we came up with the fun collection of summer cupcakes that we think you will enjoy!
