One thing that gets me through the long winter months is dreaming about summer! The patio beers, festivals, warm weather and of course the summer cakes! These 8 summer cakes will warm you right up.

1. Melted Ice Cream Cake

You can feel the warmth with this cake! (and a little bit of the sugar as well) Cannot wait for the weather to be warm enough to melt my ice cream!

2. Tropical Floral Cake

3. Bonne Voyage Cruise Ship Cake

This was one of the first drip cakes I ever did and I was pleased how it came out! I am also pleased with the vacation vibes this cake gives off.. Especially since I am prone to sea sickness and really don't care for the cruise life. These cruise vibes are enough for me!

4. Popsicle Cupcakes

Last summer I had challenged my peers to give me inspiration for a summer treat. My friend suggested implementing Popsicles into a cake or cupcake variety. So after a small amount of research it was discovered that Mike n' Ikes with a little toothpick insterted make great looking mini popsicles! So here we have them, they're quaint and fun.

5. Pastel Wedding

These colours say "fresh" ! This was not an indoor formal strict wedding, this is a fun and intimate summer (possibly outdoor) wedding equipped with an appropriate cake to match!

6. Strawberry Shortcake

This one is pretty self explanatory.. Strawberry Shortcake! The perfect in season dessert for a back yard BBQ or heck any day of the week really. This light and fluffy dessert will make you feel like you're eating a sweet cloud. (With the  added bonus of the healthy**?? topping)

7. Mermaid Cupcakes

Can you hear the ocean waves in these cupcakes? These fun mermaid cupcakes will be a great addition to any youngin's summer birthday bash! Or an adult's summer birthday bash I don't judge.

8. Chicken Wing Cake

Last but certainly not least in our list of fantastic summer cakes is the chicken wing cake! Edible images are amazing (confession- I am no good at sculpting, it's something I'm working on but until the day I improve I have the images to fall back on) The savory inspired dessert will make you crave wing night. I even experimented with blending my hubby's secret chicken blend in the icing.

 

There we have it! Miss summer yet? You probably already did and I just made it worse... WELL just remember winter can't last forever and the festival days are on their way!!
