These ‘Grill’ Cupcakes Are Quite Possibly The Cutest Things We’ve Ever Seen

Whether you consider yourself a baker or merely love to devour the result of someone else’s baking efforts, your day will be a little sweeter having seen these adorable “grill” cupcakes. Can you imagine a cuter dessert to bring to your next barbecue?

These cupcakes feature chocolate cake (“the charcoal”) topped with red and orange frosting (“the flames”) with a royal icing “grill” and gummy bear “shish kabob” on top.

Who thinks of these things, you ask? In this case, it’s a Canadian mom blogger named Elizabeth who is a mom of two girls and was “a successful IT professional before finding out that I was truly in love with being a stay-at-home mom and professional Canadian mommy blogger.”
