Sadly, neither of my children have a summer birthday, but if they did I know I wouldn’t hesitate to throw a fun summer birthday bash complete with a festive cake. And in searching through our archives, I’ve come to realize that we have a lot of fabulous summer birthday cake ideas that just might help you out in the coming month, if you happen to be planning a warm-weather celebration for one of your favourite little people.
The beauty of these cakes is that despite looking relatively impressive, they are all easy to put together, and don’t require specific baking or cake decorating skills.
