Jeff Mauro's son Lorenzo and Geoffrey Zakarian's children Madeline, Georgie, and Anna join the Kitchen hosts to share a Father's Day "dad joke" cookie cake, as seen on Food Network's The Kitchen

Dads are great! They love us and keep us safe, and they're always good for a "Dad Joke." That's why we suggest giving dad a "Dad Joke" cookie cake for Father's Day! Get the kiddos to decorate a plain pizza box (buy online) with adorable artwork and have them write out their favorite dad joke on the outside. You can make a jumbo chocolate chip cookie from your favorite cookie recipe or store-bought dough, or order it from a local bakeshop. Decorate the cookie with the punchline so when dad opens the box, he gets a chuckle. It's a special personalized gift that he'll always remember.
