4 Father’s Day Bakes That’ll Knock Dad’s Socks Off

There’s an old proverb that proclaims “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”. If you’re a firm follower of obscure sayings from bygone times, this is the article for you. If you just really enjoy baking, then you should stick around too! Father’s Day is a few weeks away, so it’s about time to get thinking about what to get him. If you’re a little puzzled, the outdated proverb is somewhat true. Baking is a sure-fire way to raise a smile from dad on Father’s Day. You don’t need to win his affections, but you’ll definitely get in his good books!

Over the past few weeks, we’ve had our thinking caps on at Create and Craft HQ. If we could choose four bakes to make for our fathers, what would they be? After much debate, we finally settled on four traditional, heartwarming, and totally scrumptious treats for Father’s Day.

We promise he won’t be disappointed!

Tie and Moustache Pancakes
