Tie Cake

Another fun craft for kids to make for their fathers is a tie cake. For this gift you will need cake mix, canned pumpkin, white colored frosting, food coloring, a square cake pan, a loaf pan, bowls, spoons, knives, and a pastry bag. If you don’t have a pastry bag you can roll up a piece of wax paper.

Start by assisting as kids mix the cake mix with the pumpkin, fill the two pans, and bake according to the directions on the cake mix package. Allow the cake to cool when they are done, and mix the frosting while you are waiting. Start by placing some frosting in a bowl. Then help children add food coloring of your choice to the frosting. Mix it together thoroughly.

When the cakes are cooled, flip them over onto a plate. Use a knife to cut the corners off of the loaf cake. Then trim a little of the cake off of the sides of the loaf. This will make the base of the tie, and can be placed on top of the square cake. Then add two corners together in a triangle shape at the top of the tie to make the knot. Place the two triangles on either side of the knot to create the collar. Ice the entire cake with the white frosting.

Then ice the tie using the colored frosting. Mix another color with some frosting in a separate bowl and put the frosting in the pastry bag. Write a special Father’s Day message for your dad on the cake, and add details to the tie.

These edible gift ideas are perfect crafts for children, and dads will love them too. Try creating thee projects to make the children and father’s in your life very happy on this special holiday.
