I want to make some “Manly Cupcakes” to celebrate Father’s Day, but I can only think of Cappuccino cupcakes from the top of my head. I want more ideas before I make a decision on what to make, so I’ve asked my friendly fellow bloggers for some suggestions.


Here are the 15 Manly Cupcakes:


1. Sarah: I have a recipe on my blog for Butterbeer Cupcakes – they have a nice creamy toffee flavour. – from Kippers and Curtains. (Image from Pastry Affair).


2 & 3. Jenni: Note sure what man flavours are meant to be, but my husband’s favourites are blueberry or red velvet. – from The Bear and the Fox


4. Emma: For my hubby it would be espresso, Baileys and dark chocolate – from Ready Freddie Go. (Image from One Sweet Mess)


5. my favourite – Cappuccino cupcake.





6. Lianne: Larger and lime pop a few drops of each in your cupcake mix – from Ankle biters Adventures.


7. Lyndsey: My husband loves peanut butter so Reeces cupcakes would be perfect! – from Me Him the Dog and a Baby


8. Jade: Bacon and Maple! – from The Blog Assistant


9. Becky: You could make cupcakes that look like burgers!! Surely most men like burgers?? 🍔 – from Mommy and Rory. (Image from Sainsburys)


10. Lucy – suggested Guinness and chocolate flavour cupcake.- from Momma Mack(Image from Life Tastes Good blog)





11. Eileen: Coca Cola cupcakes are always a winner in our house. – from Your Money Sorted. (Image from Hostess with the Mostess)


12. Emma: Gin & Lime! – from Happy Family Hub. (Image from Globe Scoffers)


13. Emma: Banoffee cheesecake is his favourite in this household so some variation of that in a cupcake would go down a treat! – from The Money Whisperer. (Image from The Little Blog of Vegan)


14. Clare: Millionaires cupcakes, chocolate with toffee filling – from Wild Mama Wild Tribe. (Image from Jane’s Patisserie)


15. Shel: Chocolate orange! – from The Willow Tree



Well… I think that’s enough sweetness going on for this Father’s Day.

I hope this is helpful if you are stuck for ideas like myself and that you can end the day with a good cupcake.

We wish you all a day full of fun and good memories on Father’s Day!

      The really look delicious don’t they. I’d love to try the Chocolate orange cupcake. Yumm! (Yep, totally for me and not for hubby. haha!)

    wow these look great and I would love to try the gin and tonic ones or the chocolate orange ones. If i had to add a flavour it would be passion fruit as not enough people use that and it is so delicious #FabFridayPost

      Oh! Passion fruit is definitely something new. I’ve never tried that before. I must find a way! 😀 xx

    And now I want cupcakes for lunch! I think my husband would die for those Reese’s Peanut Butter cupcakes! Definitely thinking of a fun menu for Fathers Day now!

      Haha! I’ve never had Reese’s Peanut Butter cupcakes either. It’s interesting. My hubby would never touch anything with nuts in. Typical him! lol!

    They all look quite yummy! My husband is partial to chocolate/ peanut butter combo. Though he really liked a Boston cream cupcake my middle son made last year. #FabFridayPost
