It is Father’s Day tomorrow, which means we have to finalize all plans and activities to celebrate with the family. Many of us have probably already planned out what we would cook or order for mealtime, so we can start preparing or ordering early. But the question is, have you already planned your dessert?
We get that dessert can be difficult to make, especially if you already have an entire meal good for the family to prepare. But dessert is a great tanggal-umay addition to the meal itself. It’s like the saying, “End it with a bang!” but make it food. (Read: 5 Heartfelt Prayers For Fathers Of All Kinds)
Check out these unique desserts that the family will enjoy:

Father’s Day Desserts: Coffee-Flavored Donuts
If you’d much rather have more ‘handy’ desserts, you should go for Krispy Kreme’s new coffee-flavored donuts! Their latest release consists of three different flavors inspired by three different caffeine drinks that coffee lovers love. The three donuts are caramel macchiato, kaffee latte, and kaffe mocha.
All of them are cake doughnuts instead of the regular ones. You can order through GrabFood, FoodPanda, the Krispy Kreme website, Mangan, OrderMo, and Groover.
Father’s Day Desserts: Mango Cashew Cake
