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.
