Haha speaking of dads' favorite cakes...
Every year for his birthday, my dad begs me to make boxed chocolate cake covered in icing made from chocolate pudding mixed with Cool Whip.
That thump you just heard was Saria passing out.
STOP READING THIS THREAD ALREADY, SARIA! It will only cause you pain.
I can see why he likes it, though. It's yummy. Also, he's one of 9 kids... That kind of a cake would've been a delicacy!
Once or twice I've tried making something different, or buying a cake from a bakery, and he gets totally angry about it!
