Easy Father's Day Cake


It's been sooo long since I've written. I apologize. My twin girls were in the so-called "terrible two's" phase, and even though I still cooked on regular basis, I just hadn't had the time to try new recipes to post on this blog. Now that my girls are in preschool, I can finally go back to cooking in peace, if you know what I mean.

Anyhow, Father's day was a couple weeks ago, and I wanted to surprise my wonderful husband with a homemade cake. I stumbled into this video recipe for a Father's Day cake at familyfun.com and decided that it looked simple enough to make. And it really was! It's just a simply decorated rectangular cake, put in a pretty box with pretty bows. It looks so fancy that he'll think you spent hours making it!

But be sure you are there when he opens the present! Because my husband almost shook the box trying to guess what was inside! :)



I'll re-post the recipe here in this blog, but you may want to check out the video on their website here

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY CAKE RECIPE {from: familyfun.com}

Ingredients

9-by-12-by-2-inch cake, store-bought or homemade from scratch or a mix
Pastel icing the color of dad's favorite shirt
Cardboard shirt box (ask at the drycleaner's), lined with waxed paper
White paper for making a shirt collar and two cuffs
Colorful frosting for the tie

Instructions

1. Bake a cake in a 9-by-12-inch cake pan, remove from the pan, cool, and place on waxed paper.
2. Start by lining a 9-by-12-inch cardboard shirt box with tissue paper. Cover with a larger piece of waxed paper and flip the cake over and set it bottom-up in the box.
3. Frost with a pastel-shirt colored icing. Cut a collar and two cuffs out of white paper. The collar is a strip, rolled into a ring and taped, with a small V cut out of the center. The cuffs are rectangles with candy cufflinks.
4. Add a colorful frosting tie below the point where the collar will be placed. Just before serving, trim away the waxed paper and add the collar and cuffs.
