Our Favourite Cakes for Summer

Are your favourite Winter go-to cakes just a little too heavy to serve on warmer days? Not to worry, we have compiled a collection of our favourite Summer cakes that are great for sharing over coffee, serving at barbecues and wrapping up for picnics! Check out our summer inspired line-up below.

Our Favourite Cakes for Summer

1) Peach Upside-down Cake

Stone fruits are in season, and a slice of this cake goes perfectly with a coffee for those impromptu visits to friends’ houses on the way to the beach.

2) Strawberry Ice-cream Cake

Once summer hits, we’re screaming for ice-cream! Big juicy strawberries are also growing in abundance, so combine the two and create this cool and creamy strawberry ice-cream cake.

3) Watermelon Cupcakes

Though not actually made out of watermelon, and not strictly a cake either, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share these adorable little cupcakes with you. Sit these pretty treats on the table as a dessert to your summer barbecue spreads and you can rest assured there won’t be any leftovers.

4) Lemon Blueberry Cake

Zesty citrus, a light and fluffy cake, creamy white chocolate icing and a fresh berry burst would have to be impossible to deny. Try out this beautiful looking cake for a special summer birthday delight.

5) New York Cherry Cheesecake

Cherries are ripe for the picking through the summer season, so best make use of them with this creamy cheesecake. The added zest will put a zing into your Summer baking.

6) Flourless Chocolate Cake

Because maintaining that beach ready body is hard enough without the added stress of denying yourself a slice of decadent chocolate cake. Meet halfway with this slightly less detrimental-to-your-waist flourless chocolate cake.
