While for many bakers, the famous cliché of learning to bake with your mother may ring true, for this one day of the year, it’s time to focus on the special men instead and celebrate Father’s Day. It’s time for dads across the UK to have a relaxing day off, and what better way than with cake?
There’s no chance of being stuck for edible gift ideas this Father’s Day, especially with all the exciting ideas that the bakers of the North West have already dreamt up on Twitter.
Hey Little Cupcake
Who said cupcakes weren’t for men? Hey Little Cupcake have created a Father’s Day collection of manly cupcakes, made in a selection of different flavours and topped with complimentary buttercream and sugar paste decorations, including moustaches! Why not let your customers say thank you to their dad this year with a cupcake?

Liverpool Cake Company
Many dads are renowned for sloping off to sit on the sofa with the remote and a cup of tea, which inspired this brilliant idea from the Liverpool Cake Company. We couldn’t think of anything more personal than letting your customers surprise their dad this Father’s day with a sugar paste model of himself.
This cake was fun to do for a dad who is prone to falling asleep on the couch! It’d be a good Fathers’ Day one. pic.twitter.com/HwGiKmq3UV
