From a culinary viewpoint the only difference between zucchini and cuke flowers is size. Cucumber blossoms are exponentially smaller.

 

If you just want to bread and fry them, go to it. Personally, I wouldn't have the patience to stuff cucumber flowers. But there's no reason not to if you've a mind to.
