Make Dad feel extra special with this baseball-themed cake, which is easier to make than it looks! This bat doesn’t need any batter in the lineup because it’s made with store-bought pound cake. The trimmings from carving the stick are used to form a giant baseball. If you’re looking for the sweet spot, it’s in the flavor-painted wood grain.
