Dads don’t always want a lot of attention on Father’s Day, but I think we can all agree that it’s a really good excuse to eat chocolate cake. Finding a way to liven up the cake is a small way to show that you care. Today we took one cake and decorated it three different ways to help you get some inspiration to celebrate the special dads in your life.
Chocolate Royalty: This first cake is the easiest. You just need the cake and a paper crown. Here at Just Artifacts we offer two types of crowns, one for kings and one for queens. Naturally, we used the crown hat for a king. We had to cut it a little smaller to make it fit properly on our little cake. Once you have the cake you just play around with the crown until it looks how you want it. Then cut it and use tape to keep it closed. A cake fit for a king…or at least your favorite dad!
Banner-ific: This beauty will take a few minutes longer, but the possibilities are endless! We shared a tutorial on how to do cake bunting previously. You can find it here. You will need some paper straws, baker’s twine, and washi tape. That’s it! Be sure to pick them out in your special father’s favorite colors and you’re all set to go. Don’t forget to add some paper mustache straw flags to your cake stand to toughen it up a bit.
I Mustache Dad a Question: Grab some scissors and your favorite paper and customize this cake just for dad! You will need letters cut out for “dad” or any other name you’d prefer like “papa”, “pops”, or “old man”. Use some washi tape and adhere the letters onto the tops of paper straws. Don’t forget to include a couple more straws with mustaches. Stick the straws into the top of the cake according to how you want it to look and you’re all set to go!
