Cakes for Dad

Father’s Day takes place every third Sunday of June, and this year it falls on 18 June, which is already this Sunday. It is that one special day of the year when the world honors fathers (and father figures) by recognizing the important role that they play in our lives. A celebration which started in Washington, United States, in 1910, Father’s Day has been observed in the Philippines since the 1980s. It is not an official public holiday, but since it falls on a Sunday, families are able to celebrate it without any problems.

As it is with Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May, families usually celebrate Father’s Day with food. They go out and enjoy lunch or dinner together. They also gift Daddy dear with a cake or confection. Here are some of the options.

Kumori’s Chocolate Truffle Cake.


Kumori Japanese Bakery & Café is offering an exclusive cake for Father’s Day. It is called Midnight Choco Truffle Cake, a rich chocolate cake layered with cocoa brownies and dark chocolate ganache. Petite in its five-inch in diameter cake priced at P699, it is available in Kumori branches in Metro Manila as well as online via or through food apps Foodpanda and GrabFood.
