Chris Hemsworth Bakes Birthday Cake for Daughter India Rose: ‘I Call It La TRex à la Chocolate’

05/09/2016 at 02:00 PM ET

Because a Norse-god dad’s work is never done, Chris Hemsworth recently took on the baking duties for his daughter India Rose‘s 4th birthday festivities.

The former PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive and star of the upcoming female-led Ghostbusters posted a photo to Instagram on Saturday, showcasing his handiwork in the kitchen.

“What happens when the bakery says they don’t have time to make your daughter a birthday cake?” the actor, 32, captioned the snap, which depicts an adorable-yet-terrifying Tyrannosaurus rex.

“You get involved and smash one out yourself! I call it ‘La TRex à la chocolate.’ ”

Hemsworth’s wife Elsa Pataky, 39, also took to Instagram to share an alternative view of the work done by The Huntsman: Winter’s War star.

“Papa working hard on India’s birthday cake!” Pataky wrote in English under the same message in her native Spanish, alongside the pic showcasing Hemsworth’s baking skills — as well as his impressive biceps. “Happy birthday India, love you more than anything! #family #love #birthdaygirl.”

Hemsworth and Pataky are also parents to twin sons Sasha and Tristan, who turned 2 in March.

“For the first time, it’s not about me anymore,” Hemsworth told Parade magazine last year. “This internal dialogue about my own boring story isn’t at the forefront of my thoughts. It’s about them now, their welfare. If I make a film, what is that going to allow us to do? What is it going to give them?”

HELP! on

Wonderful effort, but don’t quit your day job.

I think it’s great that he took the time to bake his daughters birthday cake–but why is this front page news? I get annoyed when fathers get so much praise for something they should have done anyway. Would it have been a big deal if a mother baked her child’s birthday cake? Men should have to participate in their child’s life just as much as a mother…without receiving a trophy.

Actually, Gina, I do think it’s a good thing to commend fathers for doing things like this. We get example after example of what it is to be a good mother, but comparatively few of what it’s like to be a good father. Many of my friends have said that they wouldn’t leave their small children alone with their husbands, or have expressed disappointment at how hands off their husbands are. When a guy’s guy like Chris Hemsworth is lauded for doing something like baking for his baby girl, it makes such a thing acceptable.
