This Father’s Day may be different from most, but make the best of the occasion from home with these gift ideas
Janice Wong Singapore
This Father’s Day, Janice Wong Singapore invokes a father’s love for all things tried and true, with a limited-edition Father’s Day cake and three gift sets offered in classic combinations of flavours, colours and luxuries.
The cake gets straight to the point and wins his heart. Available from June 1, this year’s Father’s Day Cake ($70, 900g) comes in a classic coffee and chocolate pairing, with the former used to deepen the rich, creamy cocoa notes of 38% milk chocolate.
Layers of crushed Biscoff cookies, coffee ganache, chocolate sponge, Biscoff mousse and milk chocolate mousse are enrobed in a signature marbleglaze sporting hues of grey, black and gold. The whole is presented as a work of art that needs little except gold-dusted orbs and the word “DAD” in big, bold lettering.
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.
Add a touch of luxury with the FD Chocolate + Caviar gift set ($130), created in partnership with 8 Gems Caviar. Indulgence comes in the form of a tin of sustainably farmed sturgeon roe and a box of nine 70% dark chocolate ganache bon bon. Enjoy a mother-of-pearl spoonful with every bon bon for pure bliss delivered with each bite.
There is also the FD Champagne Celebration Package ($150), which includes the Father’s Day Cake and a special box of five 70% dark chocolate bon bons, made complete with a bottle of 750ml Bottega Prosecco DOC Brut Gold.
For pre-order from June 1 for pick-up or delivery, the Father’s Day cake and gift sets are available from www.janicewong.online.

For all the Dad jokes created — Lyre’s Dry Martini perfectly matches Dad’s dry humour and the jokes that you have heard over time. Just stir 60ml Lyre’s Dry London Spirit and 15ml chilled Lyre’s Apéritif Dry with ice. Strain the tasty tipple into a martini glass or small coupette and add a lemon twist for an elevated look.
For all the times he fixed something — Lyre’s Blackberry Smash is the perfect ode to everything that your old man has attempted to fix. 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 four smashed blackberries, eight mint leaves and ½ part white sugar syrup.
Once all muddled up, add two 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 holi days and special moments. Create this modern classic tipple by pouring two parts Lyre’s Dry London Spirit, ¼ part white sugar syrup, ½ part lime juice and three parts ginger ale into a highball glass with ice, and adding eight mint leaves.
Stir your cocktail and serve with a plump mint spring and lime wedge, just like they would in Dad’s favourite hotel bars. Find more recipes and shop online at www.lyres.asia.
