Bake a Fishy Father's Day Treat
From dads to stepdads to trusted figures who fill that role in our lives, there’s a lot for sons and daughters of any age to celebrate on Father’s Day. Show the big guy just how much he matters with a delightful dessert that brings a new meaning to the word “fishy.” (Don’t worry, the dessert itself is anything but!)
Fishing Pole Cupcakes
Put a smile on dad’s face with a treat that celebrates a favorite pastime for dads everywhere. To make this special Father’s Day treat, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- Boxed cupcake mix (preferably, dad’s favorite flavor!)
- 1 egg
- Water or milk
- Blue Icing
- White Icing
- Pretzel sticks
- Fish shaped crackers
- Cupcake paper liners
- Cupcake baking pan
Once you’ve got all your ingredients, follow the instructions on the box to bake your cupcakes. Line your cupcake baking pan with your paper liners and carefully pour the mixture into each cupcake holder and pop them in the oven.
After they’ve finished baking (you can use the toothpick test to determine if they’re done or not), take them out of the oven and allow them to cool.
Here’s where you get to show off your art skills! Top each cupcake with blue icing for the water and then add one of your fish-shaped crackers to each cupcake. Next, place a pretzel stick on top of each cupcake—it’s ok for the pretzel to hang about halfway off.
Finally, you’ll take your white icing and draw a line from the fish-shaped cracker to the pretzel stick to complete your fishing rod. And there you have it! A tasty dessert fit for the world’s greatest dad!
Bright Tip! Create your own frosting piping bag using a sandwich bag. Simply fill a corner of the bag with icing and snip the corner of the bag to make an opening.
