Summer Citrus Sensation
Evoke the brightness of the summer sunshine with a citrus-inspired cake that brings together the tanginess of oranges, lemons, and limes. Or, for a juicy burst and the perfect tangy and sweet flavour combination, why not add some fresh raspberries? For the final touch to this refreshing, light and airy summer cake, add a dusting of powdered sugar with a citrus or berry infused glaze. Perfect for a warm, sunny afternoon.
For a sophisticated twist on the traditional lemon, why not infuse the cake with delicate lavender? The floral aroma complements the zingy lemon perfectly, creating a cake that’s both elegant and refreshing. It’s the perfect flavour combination for a sophisticated summer garden party or a bridal shower.
Berry Bliss Bonanza
Summer wouldn’t be complete without berries, from strawberries and blueberries, to raspberries and blackberries. They will give your cake that burst of vibrant colour and explosion of sweet, juicy flavours, perfect for a summer day. To finish, why not complement it with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or a drizzle of berry coulis, for the ultimate summer cake?
Tropical Summer Delight
Embrace the tropical vibes of summer with the sweetness of ripe mangoes, the creaminess of coconuts and the tanginess of pineapples, passionfruit and guava. For the finishing touch, why not add a layer of light tropical mousse for an irresistible texture contrast and exotic, sensory explosion.
A peach-infused cake perfectly embodies the essence of a lazy sunny afternoon. The sweetness of the peaches work perfectly, either baked into the cake layers or incorporated into a velvety peach buttercream. You could also enhance that sense of summer with the classic pairing of peaches and tea. Infuse your cake with the delicate peach flavour and then complement it with a subtle tea-infused frosting. Now, that’s the quintessential summer cake recipe!
Nothing says summer more than cool, refreshing watermelon. This iconic fruit will cool you down and transform any summer cake recipe into a revitalising treat for your taste buds. For an invigorating burst of flavour, why not infuse the watermelon layers with a hint of fresh mint and then add watermelon cubes as a topper. Perfect for picnics, garden parties or poolside treats.
For something a little different, why not try an iced coffee-flavoured cake? Infuse your cake with the rich essence of coffee and layer with a velvety coffee-flavoured frosting. The cool, subtle bitterness of coffee is balanced by a touch of sweetness. It makes this summer cake a delightful choice for coffee aficionados and dessert lovers alike.
