Happy Father's Day

I hope all the awesome Dads out there enjoyed a fabulous Father's Day! My own Super Daddy husband  had fun being showered with love by his two beautiful little girls, which in addition to the many many many special drawings (they really love art) also included a cake.

We knew we were going to make him a cake, but I wasn't sure how to decorate it. My soon-to-be 5 year old always wants to help me decorate...and she is rarely allowed. Not because I'm some mean mommy, but because my cakes are typically for a celebration or for someone else. But I really wanted her to be able to help with a cake for Daddy this year. Then I saw this super fun Doodle Cake over at Sweetapolita and I knew it was perfect!

I think this concept is genius! A cake covered in white fondant and then decorated with edible markers. Can I tell you that my daughters had a blast decorating this cake??? It is the perfect way to let the kids put their personal touch on a cake with no limitations. Ok...I did have to stop my 2-year-old from stabbing the cake with her marker (you can see a couple of holes she made), but mostly they were free to do what they wished.

Inside the cake was a yellow cake with caramel filling and chocolate ganache frosting under the fondant (at my husband's request). It was as delicious as it was beautiful and Daddy loved his very special cake!

Happy Father's Day!
