Tag: Father’s Day
I can’t believe Father’s Day is already this weekend. This year has been flying by, filled with projects, activities, family fun, and lots of work. When life is so hectic, it’s easy to forget the simple things to share appreciation or to just relax and enjoy some time with loved ones.Read More

My husband likes to play golf and I saw a cake similar to this on a website awhile back using coconut. I thought I would try to make it with white chocolate shavings instead (The hubby isn’t a big fan of coconut). I am very pleased with the way it turned out!
- Cake Mix
- Vanilla Icing
- Icing Color (you can try food coloring, but I heard that can ‘water down’ the icing
- 4-6 Vanilla Wafers
- White Chocolate
- Green Icing Spray (I got at Michaels for a few bucks)
- 1 Chocolate Chip
- White gumballs
Bake cake mix as instructed in two round pans. After they cool, I laid them overlapping a little, and cut the overlapping cake. I put the cake on a foil-covered piece of cardboard; You can use a serving platter. Next, dye your icing green and spread over the whole cake.
I didn’t have a block of white chocolate, so I melted a bag of white chocolate chips in a wax paper lined plastic container and froze it making my own little block. Next, make shavings for the grass using a vegetable peeler. Put the shavings in a container and spray them with the green icing color, shaking the over all the shavings. It is easier to do it in small batches. Cover the cake except for where the hole will be and a couple sand dunes. Crumble the vanilla wafers a sprinkle to create sand dunes. First, I push the spots down a little, to get a little depth.
Push a chocolate chip, flat-side up, for the hole. Place a few white gum balls as golf balls. I didn’t have any gum balls, so I barely melted some of the white chocolate and formed little balls. Last is the flag. I didn’t have any pretzels and couldn’t think of anything else to use, so I just rolled up a small piece of white construction paper and used a red piece for the flag.
It isn’t as hard as it looks!
This Saturday, June 18th, Home Depot is having another FREE workshop for kids, ages 5-12. The event is 9am – 12pm. This is a special Father’s Day workshop. The kids will not only get their completed project, but also receive a kid-size orange apron and achievement pin.

Lowe’s offers a great ‘Build and Grow’ Clinic. Tomorrow, Saturday June 11th at 10am, the kids are building a Goofy Golf kit. This would make a great Father’s Day gift!
The first 50 to register and be present at the store will receive the kit, an apron, and goggles. the recommended ages is 1st-5th grade.

There are many restaurants to choose from, but remember to always read the fine print. Sometimes it states you have to spend so much to use the gift certificate (IE, you have to spend $35 to use the $25 certificate). And after you purchase it, you just print the certificate from your printer immediately. This is a great deal for a night out with that special someone or the family!
