Let’s get this Party Started!

With some sugar!

Happy Father’s Day everyone! Or – for those in the know – Happy Falker Satherhood!


For less wrecky baked goods though, keep reading.

My family has a tradition of doing silly, themed baked goods for Father’s Day each year. So on Sunday, we started the day with crepes, strawberries, and fresh whipped cream. Yum! Then for our family’s party, it was on to the main event.


Hamburger cupcakes! Served with sugar cookie fries! The buns are golden cupcakes, the burgers are brownies, and the lettuce and ketchup are colored frosting (Father is allergic to nuts, but shredded coconut also works perfectly for lettuce). Recipe and idea courtesy of Bakerella, a fun little site that I discovered in my early college years. Hers are far prettier than mine though, so you should definitely check out her stuff.


And this next one is courtesy of my creative and talented cousin Audrey. My grandfather has a wonderful little obsession with his lawn, and we cousins help him out whenever we can. He also has a wonderful little obsession with sweets. The diabetes is perhaps a threat- but hey, he hasn’t lost any toes yet!

What about you guys? Any fun traditions? Any special baked goods do you guys do for holidays? I’m always looking for more ideas.
