Rock on! These sweet cupcakes are easily adaptable to so many occasions – especially Father’s Day. You could add a kid’s name to the flag, and use it for a tiny scientist-themed birthday party or a construction-themed party. Switch it up more, and give little treat bags to teachers – that last day of school is coming up fast!
