We’ve had some summer weather here in the UK so my thoughts are turning to tropical fruit. Here’s some sweet treats you can make or buy.
How incredible is this tropical roll cake by Aww Sam? It even has crushed Pocky inside! The recipe comes with a template to help you create the pattern so it’s easier than you might think. It’s frozen too so great for a summer party.
Speaking of Pocky, how about mango flavour? There are a few different versions available online – this Thai edition at Japan Centre has the cutest packaging and is just 99p a box.
I don’t really like marzipan but marzipops are making me want to change my mind. They have lots of sweet summer-themed treats in their Etsy shop just now and they’re so bright and colourful.
If you enjoy a baking challenge, how about pineapple macarons? Kawaii Sweet World’s video has step by step instructions and some great tips for perfect macarons that will impress you friends.
Candy and cats? Trust Tofu Cute to find the most kawaii sweets! These Nyan Kore Cat Fruit Candies come in 7 tropical fruit flavours, each with a different cat on the packaging. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans too.
