There are all kinds of tricks to making the perfect bourbon cake. Things like making sure you use a high-quality bourbon like Angels Envy Bourbon Finished in Port Wine Barrels.
This year for Father’s Day, the boys and I will be making this cake for my dad. A man who over the years, has taught me more than a few lessons in life, but the one that if you ask my siblings and me what stuck out the most to us a kids and we would all answer: his letters.
Through the years, I’ve learned to pass on this art of handwritten letters with my kids. While they may not be able to go pen to paper like my dad with his perfect penmanship—you know, the kind you can tell was honed through the years absent a keyboard—they are starting off with handmade cards.
So to accompany this cake we will making for him, they will also be enclosing their own homemade cards with handwritten words to him.
I can’t wait to share this cake with my dad and a glass of Angels Envy.
