Fathers’ Day is fast approaching, and we’re here with a gift guide featuring things that you wouldn’t think to get for your Dad at first, but might just be the gift that wins you the title of Best Gift-er this year!
Celebrate this Father’s Day with Janice Wong Singapore’s classic combinations of flavours, colours and gifts as old as time
This Father’s Day, Janice Wong Singapore—the eponymous confectionery boutique helmed by celebrated chef and artist Janice Wong—invokes upon a father’s love for all things tried-and-true, in a limited-edition Father’s Day cake and three gift sets offered in classic combinations of flavours, colours and luxuries that money can buy.
Available from 1 June 2021, this year’s Father’s Day Cake (S$70 nett for 900gm) comes in a classic coffee and chocolate pairing, with the former used to deepen the rich, creamy cocoa notes of 38 per cent milk chocolate. Layers of crushed Biscoff cookies, coffee ganache, chocolate sponge, Biscoff mousse and milk chocolate mousse are enrobed in a signature marble glaze sporting hues of grey, black and gold, presented as a work of art that needs little except gold-dusted orbs and the word “DAD” in big, bold lettering. Nothing like a cake that gets straight to the point, and straight to his heart.
Each cake comes with a QR code that leads to a step-by-step video tutorial on how the cake is made, presented by chef Janice Wong herself. For fathers who have an inclination for life’s finer luxuries, Janice Wong Singapore presents three Father’s Day Celebration gift sets that will do just the trick.
Available for pre-order from 1 June 2021 for pick-up or delivery after 5 June 2021, the Father’s Day cake and gift sets will be available from www.janicewong.online on a first-come, first-served basis, while stocks last.

Whether he is a master engineer or swears by duct tape to fix anything, this summer cocktail will loosen up and impress him with your skills. In a shaker, add 4 smashed blackberries, 8 mint leaves and ½ part white sugar syrup. Once all muddled up, add 2 parts Lyre’s American Malt and ½ part lime juice into the shaker with ice. Shake your concoction and strain into an old-fashioned glass with fresh ice. Add plump mint spring and blackberry on a skewer to add that final touch that your Dad will adore.
- For all the vacations and memories –Lyre’s Gin Gin Mule will refresh your old man’s memory of your holidays and special memories. Create this modern classic tipple by, pouring 2 parts Lyre’s Dry London Spirit, ¼ part white sugar syrup, ½ part lime juice, 3 parts premium ginger ale and 8 mint leaves into a highball glass with ice. Stir your cocktail and serve with a plump mint spring and lime wedge – just like they would in Dad’s favourite hotel bars.
