Despite the thousands of “World’s Greatest Dad” mugs in the hands of dads who are, by all accounts, pretty solid, Neil Patrick Harris and husband David Burtka may just win the actual World’s Greatest Dad awards.
On Monday night, Harris posted photos on his Instagram account of the massive birthday cake he and Burtka created for their twins, Harper and Gideon.
“Happy 5th birthday to Gideon and Harper, the two greatest kids in all the land! (Cakes created and decorated by their fathers),” Harris captioned a photo of his beaming kids, dressed up in “formal” attire and sparkly crowns.
The cake, which appears to be covered in cinnamon sugar, features several characters in battle, including “droids fighting princesses.”
“The droids were mostly winning, but princesses have gumption,” Harris captioned a close-up of Gideon’s side of the cake, decorated with a giant “G.” (Harper’s side has an “H.”)
Another birthday celebration for the twins? Going to Blue Hill Farm in upstate New York to pick apples.
Conclusion: We love our dads, yes … but kind of feel bad about not being raised by Harris and Burtka.
