Butterfly Cake

Some of our fondest summer memories include helping our moms and grandmas to bake birthday cakes, and Sunday cakes were a must in case anyone stopped over to visit, they always looked forward to her tasty desserts. Now with so many cake and pastry shops opening at every corner we scarcely make the time to create a good home made cake. 

This summer that's going to change and Betty Crocker's super moist mix, rich and creamy frosting, food colors, creative toppings and some inspiration from their Summer Birthday Cakes gallery and recipes will do the trick. 

1. Going Gaga For Butterflies
At the top of our to-bake list is the beautiful Butterfly Cake shown above. It's like the perfect summer fashion accessory with the bright yellow pink, green and blue glitter, but even better because it's edible! It's the perfect cake design for a girl's birthday party or an outdoor celebration. A mix of purple and pink hues would make it the perfect cake for a celebration.

2. Pretty In Pink Flip Flops
Next are these really cute pink Flip-Flops Cake decorated with candies: Flip flops are the comfy foot wear of the summer, and this cake reminds us of days at the beach, back yard barbecues, pool parties and taking a stroll in the park. Plus it's perfect for a Hawaiian hula or beach themed birthday party.
