Mille Feuille, like most French puff pastry desserts, is so impressive to look at, certainly one of the most decadent Father´s Day desserts that are also surprisingly easy to make. Layers of crisp puff pastry and smooth cream filling (Crème Pâtissière) make the most incredible texture contrast, and the taste is out of this world.

A zesty bundt cake is one of the best lemon desserts you can make for a dad who likes citrus or fruity desserts and cakes rather than chocolate.
