Golf Cupcakes for Father’s Day: Cupcake Tuesday

By June 7, 2011April 15th, 2019Cupcakes, Father's Day Cupcakes, Holidays

Welcome to Cupcake Tuesday! I’m so glad to have you! I have updated the Cupcake Heaven page, there are over 100 designs and recipes! Check it out!!

Thank you to all who linked up their Cupcake creations last week. I’m sorry I haven’t been able to leave comments on some of your blogs, something is wonky with Blogger lately. But, I have been visiting and admiring all your great work!

Today we are celebrating our Father’s and all that they do! I first spotted these Golf Cupcakes in the What’s New, Cupcake? Book, of course, you all know, my favorite! And then later, during the whole month of May, as I work in my office and their calendar hangs right in front of me on the wall.

I don’t know about you, but my hubby loves his sports. He enjoys playing Golf, although he hasn’t had the time for many years. Hopefully soon. This year, we will be celebrating at a Baseball Tournament, one of his favorite things to do! We will also get a chance to see Doug’s Dad, which will be great. He lives about 4 hours away, and we only see him a few times a year.

Creating the Golf Cupcakes is easy and fun.
