Holidays are the perfect occasion to bake a cake and bring it to any sort of get-together you do with your family and friends–and Father’s Day is no different. I hope you find a cake recipe from this list that you want to try! I included a good mix of flavors, so you should be able to find one or two that your dad will love!

Best Father’s Day Cake #1: Captain Crunch Cereal Cake

I published this Captain Crunch Cereal Cake recipe last year in honor of Father’s Day! At first, it may seem random that it’s on this list since it’s a kids’ cereal-themed cake, but this cake actually represents the talks I had with my dad while growing up. We had the best talks while eating cereal together. And now I’ve continued that tradition with my kids and it’s one of my absolute favorite things. So, make this cake for your dad if you two share the same love and bond over cereal talks! 

Best Father’s Day Cake #2: Blueberry Streusel Muffin Cake

If your dad loves blueberries, this Blueberry Streusel Muffin Cake will be the best Father’s Day cake to make for him! The inspiration behind this cake recipe comes from homemade blueberry streusel muffins my father-in-law makes that look and taste like they came straight from a bakery. It has tender yellow cake layers filled with fresh blueberries, streusel filling, and blueberry buttercream. 

Best Father’s Day Cake #3: Watermelon Cake with Lime Curd

This Watermelon Cake with Lime Curd would be a fun one to make for your dad! It helps that Father’s Day is at the peak of watermelon season, so it really is the perfect holiday to enjoy this delicious summer fruit. And what better way to do that than with cake, right? This watermelon cake has white cake layers that are doused in a watermelon simple syrup and layered with watermelon buttercream and lime curd. I’d say the best part about this cake is that it doesn’t only look like a watermelon, but it tastes like one too. Your dad will LOVE it! 

Best Father’s Day Cake #4: Death by Chocolate Cake

I had to include my Death by Chocolate Cake for all those dads who are chocolate lovers through and through! This cake is made up of dark chocolate cake layers, peanut butter cookie dough, chocolate-covered graham crackers, and chocolate fudge frosting. It’s pure heaven. And this cake has a fun stacking method because it’s a naked cake and follows suit of a milk bar style cake. It makes decorating a little easier since you don’t have to frost it! But you and your dad will still be absolutely blown away by its amazing flavor. 

Best Father’s Day Cake #5: Root Beer Float Cake

It has root beer cake layers with root beer buttercream, root beer drip, and fresh whipped cream, and is finished with a cherry on top. The root beer flavor definitely shines through every part of this cake without it being too overwhelming. I can’t wait for you to share this one with your dad for Father’s Day!
