Summer is well and truly here with this selection of seasonal dessert recipes. If you’ve been dealing with the unusual amount of rain in the UK then these might brighten up your summer days too!
Pineapple is always a fruit that screams summer to me, so these cake pops from The Cake & Bake Boutique look perfect. They seem a bit fiddly to decorate, but once you’ve got the hang of it, you’ll have a fruit bowl full of them.
You can’t have summer without a frozen treat and these watermelon ice lollies from Cooking Classy are so cute. They even have little chocolate chips in to represent the seeds (make sure you use the right ones if you want this recipe to be vegan).
Ice cream vans always feel very nostalgic to me and so these cute pastel ice cream van cookies from CookieliciousNZ just take me back to my childhood.
If you’ve got a celebration coming up, then this ombre cactus cake from The Cake Blog is beautiful. The ombre makes me think of pink sunset skies and the cacti and sand just transport you on holiday.
I think these beach cupcakes from Eat Cake Be Merry are so fun, but with an equally stylish look about them. Give yourself a decorating challenge by using moulded fondant seashells on the shore and pearlescent sprinkles to represent the sparkling sea.
You can find more seasonal recipes and activities in the Summer Crafts section.
