We love a good cake here at Mum Central so, in the leadup to Father’s Day, we put it to our Facebook community to show us your brithday cakes, made by their dad. And boy oh boy, are we impressed! And maybe a little shocked. Not that we ever doubted the fellas. Nup, never! There are some VERY talented dads moonlighting as cake decorators, you have to see it to believe it!

There are some dads who struggle to make breakfast for the kids and then there are dads who pull out all the stops and have a crack at delivering birthday cakes for their kids. Some nail it, some not so much, but each and every cake is appreciated.

Come check out these cakes created by Mum Central dads!
