Father’s Day Vancouver 2021 Desserts & Treats

Buttermere

Buttermere has created two 6-inch cakes epitomizing the essence of the fatherly figure: the Gentleman and Tuxedo.

Credit: Leila Kwok

A crunchy light brownie pâte sablée paired with a caramelized lemongrass banana layer and milk chocolate mousse, the Gentleman is accented by an edible model of a mustache man in a top hat – a thoughtful and direct contrast of the standard, old-age Victorian man to current societal norms of masculinity.

The Tuxedo is a symbol of confidence and classiness, exemplified by the timeless tuxedo silhouette and bow tie made of coffee sponge cake with a rice krispy crunch base, notes of citrus cremeux, and a mocha mousse.

Both a means of play on modern masculinity and flavours, the Gentleman and Tuxedo are available for pre-order now through Buttermere’s website until June 18th with pick up or delivery from June 13th to June 21st and are priced starting at $68.

Whiskey Gift Ideas

Toast to dad on June 20th with a timeless classic like  Confederation Oak Reserve by Forty Creek – a whisky to be sipped and cherished much like those special moments with him.  

Scotch more his style? Indulge in a rich tasting single malt like the  Glen Grant 12-Year-Old, an exceptional whisky with delicate notes of apple pie and caramel.

Or if rum is what he likes, give dad a taste of the tropics with Appleton Estate 12-Year-Old a smooth and sophisticated expression of aged rum revealing aromas of toasted oak, dried fruit and hazelnut.
