Father’s Day Treat: Gentleman Jack Cupcakes

June 10th, 2015 by Desiree Smith

Father’s Day is less than a couple weeks away, and we’re sure many dads out there would enjoy a homemade sweet treat. If your dad is also a fan of Jack Daniels, then you’ve got to give these Gentleman Jack cupcakes a try for Father’s Day!

Gentleman Jack Cupcakes

Marilyn from Pink Martinis and Pearls decided to use Jack Daniels’ Gentleman Jack whiskey in honor of her favorite gentlemen: her husband and two sons. She’s paired the whiskey with Salted Caramel flavor from the Treatology Flavoring System.

As Marilyn puts it, the Treatology flavors are “not your mama’s vanilla extract”. The flavor system comes with eight unique gourmet flavors that are ultra-concentrated. Less is more when it comes to these drops of flavor! Marilyn got a rich salted caramel finish with just a quarter teaspoon of Treatology flavoring.

I also love how Marilyn baked her cupcakes in these classy Black Wave Baking Cups. I don’t think there’s a more perfect baking cup to pair with a Jack Daniels cupcake!

Bake up a batch of these for a guy who deserves a special treat – Father’s Day or any day!

    I made these! The frosting was incredibly good, but the cupcakes had a bitter flavor. I used the Gentleman Jack Whiskey recommended. Are they supposed to have a bitter flavor? They were not terrible, but just wondering.

      Hello Jerri,

      Happy to hear you gave them a try! I reached out to Marilyn and she said her cupcakes did not turn out bitter. Did you use the recommended amount of Treatology Salted Caramel flavoring? The whiskey will be the strongest flavor in the cupcake.

      Thank you,

    Hmmm, how you’ve got me thinking…I thought I did, but maybe I accidently omitted it. I’m happy to try these again tho! LOL
