Buy cake mix
Buy dad's favorite prepared cake mix and prepare according to instructions, pouring the batter into two rectangular pans. Reserve enough for one cupcake.
Bake the cake and cupcake according to mix instructions.
Allow the cake and cupcake to cool, and then carefully remove them from the pans.
Cut the cake in half lengthwise, then, arrange the two pieces on a serving platter, forming one long, skinny shape.
Place the muffin at the top of the long shape to form the tie's knot, then use a knife to cut a V-shape at the opposite end of the cake.
Frost the cake on all sides, and then decorate it with candies to resemble a familiar tie pattern. Now, get ready for big hugs and kisses from a happy dad.
