Dad’s Sweet Treat

June 17th, 2010 by Mary Ellen Kolodiej

Father’s Day is a special day for everyone. It’s the perfect way to honor dear old Dad, Grandpa, or your favorite Uncle, and what could be better than personalized treats just for him! It’s important to take time from life’s daily routine to celebrate this fun holiday. Your Dad’s tummy and heart will thank you if you try one of these easy ideas.

Golf Bag CakeDad can have his cake and eat it too on Father’s Day! Create a sporty cake for dad using a shaped cake pan. Our Golf Bag cake pan will satisfy your dad or grandpa to a “tee” after a long day on the golf course. Score big with Dad, no matter what his favorite sport. Make a 3-D baseball, basketball, tennis ball, or soccer ball with the Sports Ball pan for a special treat after the game or while he’s watching.

Personalize a brownie for dad. Start with your favorite mix, scratch recipe, or to really make it easy on yourself, purchase freshly baked brownies at your local bakery or grocery store. Let the kids get involved. Cut the brownies into fun shapes with cookie cutters, cover with Brownie Drizzle or Ready to Decorate Frosting. Involve the whole family! Let the kids get creative! Finish the brownie with your favorite sprinkles or shimmer dust for the finishing touch! You could also use this idea to decorate dad’s favorite cookie!

Is Dad going fishing? Pack fish-themed cupcakes for his picnic lunch by following the step-by-step decorating instructions. These cupcakes are sure to be the real catch of the day! For more inspiration, browse our Father’s Day decorating ideas.

Happy Father’s Day to all of the Dads out there!
