|What a handsome looking cake for Fathers’ Day!|
Fathers Day falls on the third Sunday of June (which happens to be 15 June this year). Unlike Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day receives lesser hype and attention. Even the gifts tend to be simpler as Dads tend to be a little more laid-back and more practical. As wives, we can often get away with a handmade drawing from the kids, a blue-ray DVD of the husb’s favourite movie / TV series or a homely meal whipped up with him in mind.
I see a heartening trend where fathers today do much more hands-on care-giving now than they did a generation ago: changing diapers, getting up at night, taking children to the doctors, sharing chauffeuring duties and helping with housework (and homework!). We are very blessed that Dana’s Daddy is one hands-on Daddy. Despite his very stressful workload, he has always placed his family first in his list of priorities. For that reason alone, Dana and I try to do something special on Father’s Day to honour him.
We surprised Daddy with an early Fathers’ Day celebration last Friday. When he stepped home after a long, tiring week at work, we presented this classy Fathers’ Day cake from Emicakes (with a bowler hat and a moustache) to him. We fell in love with the design the moment we laid eyes on it – respectable yet fun-loving – exactly like our Daddy!

Daddy was visibly pleased by the surprise cake but the ecstasy hit him when he took the first taste of this cake which is made of premium D24 Durian! With the reputation of Singapore’s No. 1 Durian Cake Maker, it came as no surprise the cake is so soft, so fresh and so very delicious that every bite feels like heaven (some say even better than eating the King of Fruits itself!). The fresh cream is very light and not at all cloyingly sweet. This cake truly is the perfect indulgent treat for the entire family!
|Can’t be more pleased with our Fathers’ Day Cake this year!|
|Did you know, my 21st Birthday Cake was also from Emicakes? Yup, they have been around and still going strong!|
It’s especially touching when a child makes an effort on Fathers’ Day to do something that shouts, “Today is your day Daddy, and I love you all year long.” It can be a gift (such as Emicakes‘ Fathers’ Day Cake, a handwritten note, or a simple gesture (such as a hug) – I’m sure Daddies would be feel so fuzzy within knowing they are appreciated and loved. Remember that Daddies too have emotional tanks to be filled so go ahead and pamper your hubbies (or your Fathers and Grandpas) with a cake from Emicakes.
