Father’s Day is right around the corner and one tradition we have in our house is making fun ManCakes for our dad.

ManCakes for Father’s Day

When I was young one of my favorite memories is when my dad would be home on Saturday mornings and would make us all sorts of different shaped pancakes.  I normally got a softball and bat or a treble clef since I loved softball and music.  My sister would often get a ballerina but he could make pretty much anything. Sometimes we’d just get a fun mancake that we could dress up or make or own.  I think that is where my love of making fun pancakes came about.  We also loved going to Denny’s or Village Inn and getting their ManCakes for breakfast.

Man CakesMaking ManCakes has now become a fun tradition for our Father’s Day breakfasts.  The look changes every year but these ones were made to look like my husband.

With Father’s Day right around the corner, these Man Cakes would be a perfect breakfast.  You could design them to look anyway you want and customize them to look like your kids’ dad.  Our dad has lots of black hair so raisins came in handy for that.  We also used bananas and chocolate chips for the eyes, blueberry for the nose and strawberries for the red lips. 🙂man cakes

We’ve been making these for a few years now and these guys think they are pretty great too!  I’ve never seen them gobble up their fruit so fast.  Maybe I’ll make these every day. 😉  It was funny to listen to them decide which body part to eat first.

They thought they looked like their dad.
