Struggling to come up with the perfect present? We’ve got you covered! Here are some of our favourite easy Father’s Day Baking ideas. It’s all the inspiration you need for a gift he’ll love.

From traybakes to cake pops, we’re sure these amazing creations from our #cakedecfamous community will get your creativity flowing. The only question is, which option to choose!

Spoiler alert – there’s no wrong decision…

You can shop our entire Father’s Day collection here.



The first thing that comes to mind is probably cupcakes, right? And for good reason! When it comes to Father’s Day baking, you can’t go wrong with a box of delicious cupcakes. Choose a colour palette you know they’ll love (we’re obsessed with this elegant combo by @whiskandwonderful!) and get creative!

Mix it up with a variety of toppings. Here, Hannah added a fondant topper with cute detail (all using stamps by Sweet Stamp) to some, and left the buttercream on show on others – perfectly finished with sprinkles and a chunk of delicious biscuit. A box of celebratory perfection!



When it comes to a traybake, there are countless options. From a classic jam sponge to a brownie sheet cake or a zingy lemon drizzle, it’s the perfect way to celebrate with his favourite cake flavour! And what’s more, with some piping tips and the right decorations, you can transform it into an unforgettable gift.

Here, our friend piped beautiful blue and white buttercream around the edges, added some cute sprinkles and finished off with our “Dad” cake charm in white acrylic!

Bento Cakes


A bento cake is a super cute and trendy alternative to cupcakes. For a gift he won’t have to share, why not create one of these mini cakes, and make it extra special with a personalised message? Here, the amazing @yoras.cakes went for an outer space theme, in dreamy blue, purple and shimmering black, with matching sprinkles from Happy Sprinkles!

If a bento cake is the choice for you this Father’s Day, don’t forget to grab your Bento Box for the perfect presentation.

Who doesn’t love a cookie?! Transform an ordinary cookie into something extra special with the right stamps and cutters.

The brilliant @queenoftarts.patisserie used these Father’s Day baking stamps from Sweet Stamp to decorate her treats. Simply press into your sugarpaste/fondant, cut out and attach to your cookie with a thin layer of edible glue or piping gel.

Why not cut a mix of squares and circles for a little something different? Finish off by painting the detail with edible paints to catch the eye!

Cake Pops


And finally, we present the cutest of treats – the cake pop! If you’re looking for something a little different in your Father’s Day baking inspiration, why not try these? They are super easy to make, and can even be an extra if you have leftover sponge from a larger cake!

Add detail with edible paints and lustres, and go for a theme that he’ll appreciate. We love these cute tie and moustache versions from @cakessnpopss, for the stylish man in your life!

Make sure you grab your cake pop sticks here – we’ve got lots to choose from.

We hope this Father’s Day baking inspiration has got you feeling creative! Don’t forget to tag us in your creations on Instagram – we can’t wait to see what you make!! Use #cakedecfamous and tag @the_cake_decorating_co so we never miss a post.
