The video above from Family Fun shows how to make a fast and easy shirt cake, that’s perfect for Dad’s Day!
9-by-12-by-2-inch cake, store-bought or homemade from scratch or a mix
Pastel icing the color of dad’s favorite shirt
Cardboard shirt box (ask at the drycleaner’s), lined with waxed paper
White paper for making a shirt collar and two cuffs
Colorful frosting for the tie
Bake a cake in a 9-by-12-inch cake pan, remove from the pan, cool, and place on waxed paper.
Start by lining a 9-by-12-inch cardboard shirt box with tissue paper. Cover with a larger piece of waxed paper and flip the cake over and set it bottom-up in the box.
Frost with a pastel-shirt colored icing. Cut a collar and two cuffs out of white paper. The collar is a strip, rolled into a ring and taped, with a small V cut out of the center. The cuffs are rectangles with candy cufflinks.
Add a colorful frosting tie below the point where the collar will be placed. Just before serving, trim away the waxed paper and add the collar and cuffs.
