.Summer is ripe with celebrations of all kinds — wedding showers, end-of-school parties, graduation celebrations, Fourth of July, and pool parties galore.  I host more than my fair share of gatherings during this busy season, so spare me the cake cutting!  One of my favorite sweet treats to offer my guests when I’m entertaining is a cupcake.   The serving size is perfect and it could almost be considered finger food.  So let’s have a little fun and get creative with cupcakes.  Today, I’m sharing ten of my favorite creative cupcakes finds that will have your guests raving.
