Father’s Day Cakes to Bake with the Kids

The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, right? 

Nothing is better than a homemade gift to fill his belly and satisfy his sweet tooth for Father’s Day. These Father’s Day cake ideas will save the day and let the kids help make something dad will love.

Let your kids pick out the decorations depending on what dad likes. Is dad a football fan, fisherman or golfer? Maybe he enjoys pizza and beer? Whatever it is, Sugarcraft has a topper to match.

Toppers are the perfect final touch to his favourite dessert. To involve your children in making the special cake, try cupcakes! Each child can customise a cupcake for dad. Below are some easy-to-make decorating ideas for every dad:

1. The Golfer

Use green buttercream frosting, a star frosting nozzle and sugar pearls to create a putting green on a cupcake. Customise the flag with a triangle of paper taped to a toothpick or straw.

Check out this golfer topper to add to dad’s favourite cake or dessert.
