What cake should I bake him?

my dad for his birthday... he loves pies, but a lot of people will be coming so I thought I should do a cake.

Ideas? What's your favorite pie or cake? I want it to be something different, yet delicious!

If you could give a link to the recipe, or just put it on here, thanks!

    chocolate chess pecan pie, a southern favorite and very easy. mix 1 1/2 cups sugar with 4 tbs. cocoa. add 1/2 cup melted butter, two beaten eggs, 1 tsp vanilla and 5 ounces of pet canned milk. add 3/4 cups pecan chips and mix. pour into unbaked pie shell. have oven preheated to 400. bake at 400 for ten minutes then reduce heat to 300 for about thirty minutes. Pie will set as it cools. Is for sure to be the favorite, I just made two of t hem and am sick, lol, i ate soooo much. everyone will want your recipe. the southerners are famous for their rich desserts.

    Make him a Better Than S ex Cake!

    1 box German Chocolate cake mix

    1 jar Mrs. Richardson's butterscotch-caramel-fudge ice cream topping (If you can't find this particular type, any ice cream/caramel sauce will work!)

    1 can sweetened condensed milk

    4 Heath (or Skor) candy bars, crushed

    1 (8 oz.) tub Cool Whip

    Bake cake according to box directions in a 13 X 9 pan. Remove from oven and let cool completely. *Do NOT remove cake from pan!*

    With the handle of a wooden spoon, poke 18 holes in the cake (3 rows of 6 holes each). Warm ice cream topping in the microwave just long enough to make it pourable. Drizzle over cake and into holes. Drizzle sweetended condensed milk over cake and into holes.

    Sprinkle half the crushed candy bars over cake. Spread Cool Whip over that, and sprinkle remaining crushed candy bars on top of Cool Whip. Refrigerate until set.

    Depending on how many people you have coming, a 13 X 9 cake may not seem big enough, but this cake is VERY rich and a little bit goes a long way. :)

    Well whatever his favorite pir is you can add that flavor to the cake.

    For instance

    Lemon Pie- You can do a white cake with lemon curd filling or lemon curd over the slice with marshmellow cream for the frosting

    Cherry Pie- You can do a deep chocolate cake topped with cherry pie filling and whipped cream

    Apple Pie- You can do a crumb type of cake or a spice cake mix and top with apple pie filling

    If he likes Banana cream pie you could make a huge batch of banana cream pudding.

    I enjoy angel food cake topped with a berry fruit salad and chocolate whipped cream!

    You could always make a cake for the crowd, and a small pie for your dad to enjoy later.

    This cake is sooooo good and super, super easy. It's very rich, almost like a chocolate cheesecake without the cheese part. If you have a lot of people, you could serve small slices (it's that rich) or just make two (it's that easy). I serve mine cold with powdered sugar and sliced almonds on top. When you go to serve it, drizzle some Hershey's syrup. Ooh, I might make one tomorrow know that I'm thinking of it!

    Highly recommend it:

  • Since it's your dad's birthday, I say bake a pie. To accommodate for the number of people, maybe you could bake a few pies.

    As for ideas, bake your dad's favorite(s).

    Good luck.
