This Father’s Day, there’s no better way to express dad-preciation for your special guy than cooking good food. Whether baking a meat cake for your dad or decorating cookies for your husband, our list of ideas for your Father’s Day menu features great options that work for appetizers, lunch, dinner or dessert.
Two words: meat cake. End your picnic or family Father’s Day barbeque with this showstopper: a cornbread cake layered with pulled pork and cream cheese.
Give dad options with sweet and savory starters you can make using just one pan. Buffalo chicken and mini apple pies are like you and dad: a perfect pairing.
Even if it doesn’t fall on a Tuesday, Father’s Day is a great day for tacos. Use phyllo dough in a mini muffin cup for a fancy version that’s easy, looks great and tastes even better.
Dads gonna dad, and taters gonna tot. Top off your snacks with perfectly baked tater tots bursting with cheesy garlic and green onions.
For those dads who appreciate a little multi-tasking, these pepperoni and green pepper mini pizza bites are baked in a mega pan that can also be used to hold all your condiments. Tasty and practical!
Quick, delicious and easy enough that you can draft little hands to help before baking, our mini corn dog bites are a riff on a classic ballpark snack.
Sports-loving dads will love these adorable award cookies. Get the kids in on the gift by having them write thoughtful and cute messages with an edible ink marker.
Q. Have you heard the one about the cookie? A. Never mind, it’s crumby. Capture all the special sayings and quips that remind you of your favorite funny guy by writing them down on roll-out cookies covered in royal icing.
If your time with dad was all about the outdoors, our camping-themed cake features cute line drawings that make a centerpiece out of your memories.
No matter what you decide to make, the time you spend baking or decorating a special treat for dad is a gift he won’t soon forget. Tell us what you make below or tag us on Instagram @WiltonCakes. Happy Father’s Day!
