Top 10 Summer Desserts

blogimage

Who’s ready for the official, unofficial start to summer? I’m always pretty pumped about Memorial Day weekend and after this past winter, I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy about it! It’s time to get on board with ice cream sandwiches, boozy milkshakes and the best no-bake peanut butter pie in town! And I kind of think that after all the snow we had, it should be mandatory to eat all the ice cream we possibly can this summer. Deal?
So I put together my favorite summer sweets for you guys. It was no easy task, but I finally narrowed it down! These are the desserts I make and share throughout the summer, and I hope you will too!

When I think Mother’s Day, I think pretty, bright and fabulous! I wanted to create a cake that was all that and then some because mom deserves the best! Bright Spring flavors, comforting and makes you smile pretty much sums up this raspberry lemon layer cake!

This is one of those cakes where I don’t even know where to begin because every element has me swooning! From the incredibly light cake layers to the bright lemon curd, bordering on make you pucker material, to that buttercream! That hot pink raspberry buttercream is bursting with flavor and it doesn’t have one single drop of food coloring in it! Completely and totally smitten, my friends!

Buttery, fruity and boozy! Does it get any better? I’ve been dying to share these little Spring jewels with you all week! Thumbprint cookies are one of my faves to begin with, but shortbread thumbprints are where it’s at! Then you add bright citrus, strawberry jam and a little of the good stuff, and you might end up not sharing a single one!

The Tipsy Whiskey Layer Cake

I spent a few weeks over the summer hopping all over Ireland, bakery hopping to be exact. I completely fell in love with the country, the people and the food.

I learned a lot in a few weeks, including taking a break from everything and getting back to my roots was exactly what I needed. I was completely shocked by how much I loved spending time in the country. I mean, I knew I’d love the city, but spending time in the country, I wasn’t so sure. The only question now is when can I go back?
What shocked this city girl even more were the cakes!
