Sports Mad Dad!
Most men like sport in one form or another, and here at The Vanilla Valley is where you'll find an array of items to help you get started.
If quick and simple is what you're looking for take a look at the selection of claydough figures we have ready made to adorn your cake. The Golfer is a particular favourite, as is the Sportsman figure.
Some of you may want to get a little more creative and so why not try your hand at using silicone moulds such as the Sport Balls or perhaps skiing is his favourite hobby. Other products which you may find to be of interest are the stencils, with golf, football and rugby themes available. Patchwork cutters have great sets available, such as darts, cricket and the larger Sports set includes all you need to make a truly winning cake!
Green fingered Father!
If he isn't sitting in front of the tv supporting his favourite team, then he might be one of those who likes to potter around in the garden. With FPC moulds such as the Wellington boot and wheelbarrow it's so easy to create a cake to suit the theme. Sit the gardener claydough figure amongst some flowers and see your creation instantly blossom!
With some fathers their profession is a key part of their life. Is your father a doctor, a fireman or maybe a soldier? The claydough figures are ready made to brighten up any cake. If he's a dab hand at DIY, check out the fabulous patchwork cutter set which includes all the tools, perfect for any DIY enthusiast. FPC also have great products such as the hammer and chisel mould and wrench and pincers.
These are just a few ideas to inspire you! With hundreds more products to choose from we're sure you'll find something to help you on your way to making Dad a delicious looking treat this weekend - Happy Fathers Day!
