Fabulous Father’s Day Cake Recipes

It’s Father’s Day in Australia this weekend (always the first Sunday in September). I don’t know about you but I always find men harder to buy presents for than women. So I often end up baking.

If you can’t find that perfect Father’s Day present – bake Dad a cake.

There are cakes that are very feminine and “girly” like this blueberry bundt cake. A great cake for mums but I couldn’t imagine giving that to Dad really.

For guys I tend to keep the cakes I bake more traditional – chocolate, lemon, carrot and cheesecake are the favourites of men in my life. Or for something a little fun and delicious, how about a giant chocolate chip cookie for dad?

Here are a few cakes ideas for Father’s Day.
