As you know, the USA celebrates Father’s Day June 20. I’m not sure whether Panama sets a day to honor fathers here, does anyone know? Anyway, I just received a very unusual email from a very clever young college student, Matt. I was so impressed at his creativity that I had to share his idea with my readers.

Matt offered this small blog to me to publish on my site, he said he just “ran into my site on the internet” and decided to offer me use of his blog. This is his Father’s Day idea he wrote about in his website, www.tiepedia.com. Thanks, Matt, it’s the first time I have received such a gift, I like it! Here is Matt’s blog and his idea for this year’s Father’s Day.

“It may surprise some of you to hear what I am about to say, but it must be said. Not all guys want a tie on Father’s Day. GASP! I know, I know, it sounds crazy… and I certainly am not one of those guys, but apparently it’s true.

Listen to what Joseph Hurtado has to say, “there are only two types of men: those who hate ties, and those who grudgingly accept them as part of the job.”

Blasphemy as far as I am concerned, but if you’re Mrs. Hurtado you may want to think twice about getting Joseph a tie for Father’s Day. How about baking him a delicious necktie cake instead? I don’t think many men could resist that. Here are some sweet examples for you to consider!”

If the creators of these cakes are offended by your work being appreciated on this site, please let me know.

Thanks for sharing your inspirations with us, Matt. They are truly works of art!

The Mocha Walnut Cake recipe in my new “Boquete Gourmet Community Cookbook” would be the perfect cake for your necktie creation.
Happy Father’s Day!
