Indulge your dad or partner on Taiwan’s version of Father’s Day (the date was selected because it falls on Aug. 8, or 8/8 and the Chinese for the two numbers, baba (八 八), is a homophone for father (爸爸)). Ginjer’s Cakes ‘N More, a bakery that specializes in cookies and cupcakes topped in rich, decadent frostings, is offering gift boxes this year for the holiday. Ginjer’s Father’s Day series includes cupcakes decorated with special motifs in frosting, including a suit and tie. Want something with a sassier sense of humor? Get cupcakes topped with a rippling six-pack instead. Other cupcakes are decorated with the words “Dad,” “Love You” and “88 Happy.”

Flavors include Ginjer’s signature vanilla, chocolate or mocha to mix and match. Each cupcake is NT$80. Gift sets of six cupcakes are usually NT$480, but orders placed before Wednesday are NT$450 per box. Visit or call (02) 8773-3061 for more information.
