Fun Father’s Day Baking Ideas – Cooking up a surprise for Dad on Father’s Day is a big part of the fun for the kids. Usually, they won’t have a big budget, and they are more than happy to buy Dad another tie or even some socks. But making Father’s Day treats for Dad always feels a bit more meaningful, right? So why not get them involved with making some fun cupcakes or Father’s Day desserts for the special day. Plus, if the socks don’t go down well, at least they will make Dad smile with a tasty treat.
Of course, you can get the kids to make Dad’s favorite cake. But where’s the fun in that? Keep to his favorite flavors, get creative, and go wild with the decorating. Feel free to step in and assist, so it’s not an entire episode of Nailed It!.
At Sweets and Treats, we can help your Father’s Day cake recipes pop with our colorful and fun range of sprinkles and treats. No need to hunt down the aisles of your local grocery store. Just pop through to our website and order, and we’ll deliver your favorite toppings directly to you.
Here are Our Top Father’s Day Baking Ideas:
Make your Dad’s day by spelling out how much you love him. From the letters d, a, d to l, o, v, e, you can get creative with your words. Of course, top with soft white (or Dad’s favorite color) icing and decorate however you want. The sprinkle choices alone are endless. Make the cookie letters as big as possible. No one wants a tiny cookie!
Top Tip: Print letter templates out onto paper and cut them out; this way, your cookies will look professionally done, and the letters will be even and clear.
Ice Cream Cakes
If Dad loves ice cream, you have endless possibilities. Buy plain store-bought ice cream in either vanilla or chocolate flavor and then transform it into an ice cream cake Dad will love. Crumble chocolate cookies into vanilla to make an Oreo-style cake. Or layer mini marshmallows, graham crackers, and chopped almonds with chocolate ice cream to make a Rocky Road-style cake.
Does Dad have a hobby like fishing, golf, or watching football? All of these can translate to easy cupcake toppers. Avoid buying expensive toppers from a professional baker; instead, get the kids to try their hand at fondant molding themselves. Dad will love to see his favorite pastime topping his favorite flavor of theme cupcake.
Top Tip: Making homemade fondant is a lot tastier than getting the store-bought variety. All you need is sugar, marshmallows, water, and food coloring.
What’s your Dad’s favorite dinner – lasagna, sushi, pizza? Well, why not surprise Dad by making his cake or cookie look like his favorite dinner. It’s possible. Try cookies cut into triangles and decorated with toppings to look like pizza ingredients. For sushi, create a Rice Krispie bar in the shape of Dad’s favorite sushi and decorate it to resemble the style. A layered banana split to look like a lasagna can work too.
Nutella all the Way
Always a winner, Nutella knows how to pair two of the best flavors: chocolate and nuts. If Dad is a fan, you can have a lot of fun creating something new from this prime flavor. A few of our favorite Nutella treats include Nutella-stuffed brownies, Nutella cheesecake, and Nutella-stuffed cookie cups.
Top Tip: Why not start Dad’s morning off with a Nutella Latte? All you need to do is pour hot coffee over Nutella and stir until smooth.
Not-So-Sweet Father’s Day Treats
If you have the rare kind of Dad that isn’t a big fan of very sweet treats, there are a couple of things you can do to create a not-so-sweet but delicious treat for Father’s Day. How about a Nutella and hazelnut pastry twist? Or something like a light and creamy cheesecake, healthy pecan pie, or a fruit and nut cake with cream cheese icing.
Dad deserves the best Father’s Day desserts! And if you love baking, with or without the kids, we want to make sure you work with the best sprinkles, cupcake liners, edible glitter, and party supplies around for your Father’s Day treats.
