(Yes, really; they're cupcakes!)
Or how about this fun Tiki party?
Such a great grad cake.
Proper summertime attire is essential, of course:

Love the colors.
Of course, beachy summer cakes can be elegant, too. Just look at this gorgeous wedding cake:

Or this one:
Ack! Seahorses! I LOVE SEAHORSES. And these are gorgeous - so delicately done.
These cookies make me want to melt:
And also maybe have a piña colada. On the beach. In Grand Cayman. Mmmm. Yeah.

And finally, my favorite:
Now, everyone raise your popsicles - and here's to a great summer!
