LET’S MAKE IT A GREAT FATHER’S DAY
June 14, 2020
Happy forthcoming Father’s Day. Hopefully, those who can, will get to be with their Father’s to celebrate – albeit from a sensible social distance. Mother’s Day in March of this year was miserable as hardly anybody could be near their mum at the start of the lockdown on the country. So this event is definitely a cause for celebration and perhaps one of the first of 2020! Our featured image is a superb Orange Cake made from our Orange mix.
It’s Father’s Day on the 21st of June. If you are still racking your brain for the perfect Father’s Day gift to show him just how much you care – he would love a gift that you made with your own two hands! Nothing shows love like a home baked gift from your kitchen.
Our Danish pastry recipe pictured above is dedicated to Father’s & known as Dad’s Danish which is one to surely please him on the day.
Farmhouse Cake seems to be a favourite too – you can make this up quickly and easily with our Madeira mix and, if desired, prior to baking, the cake batter can be sprinkled with some sugar on top for a professional touch. The fact you made it for him, will not only knock his novelty socks off – it will make him feel top of the pops!
Cupcakes are great for passing around to the family popping in on Father’s Day, certainly my favourite type of cake as you do not require a plate or fork, so there is no washing up, and best of all you don’t have to share!
Thanks to Jacqueline for her cake made from our Chocolate Fudge cake mix with Kit-Kat’s & Bailey’s buttercream with gold chocolate coins on the top & perhaps showing Dad’s favourite tipples! Feeling a bit besotted with the Bailey’s buttercream currently – it is a beautiful cake & a great idea.
Nothing shows love like a home baked gift from your kitchen it says how much you love having him around and how you want to keep him around around by making sure he is eating healthily and keeping well – so spoil him this Father’s Day. If he likes baking then you can get him a ‘bunch of flours’.
Linda, made this great football cake using 2 packs of our Chocolate Fudge mix in Swiss roll tins, Linda made 4 layers for the football pitch. Covered it in green butter cream and green coloured coconut for the grass.
Our Normandy Bread with it’s anchovies & olives is appealing too – This tasty bread is welcoming when served hot with a Mediterranean dish. It is also excellent when cold, cut into cubes for parties – stick a cocktail stick in a cube and a further olive on the top. Great idea for a Father’s Day party if you want to get together with your siblings & give him a decent shout-out!
A Wright’s cake mix and a square cake tin will give you the basis to decorate the cake to create something really special for Father’s Day this year. You can make a copy of Dad’s mobile phone in the form of a cake with Smarties for buttons or dolly mixtures to represent apps. You could also create an MP3 player cake with fruit pastilles on the end of liquorice laces for earphones.
Does Dad barbeque? How about this one from Linda, featuring chicken drumsticks, burgers, sausages and kebabs on the top and a snail, worm and a slightly hungry caterpillar in the grass! Just what would you do for Father’s Day with a cake mix?
You could decorate a square cake with green fondant icing and turn it into a golf course – perfect for afternoon tee! You could form his favourite book, CD or LP! If Dad enjoys his holidays make a Beach cake or if he is a hands on handy Dad – a tool box cake with chocolate shaped tools in. Why not try a football field in his team colours, a filing cabinet or briefcase for an executive Dad. If Dad is a gardener – how about a replica of his garden made as a cake?
Just a simple square cake tin and one of Wright’s cake mixes – like the Bowler above & the Toolbox from CakesBy Linzi – just what would you do?
