Ahhhh, summer. You know, there's something about July here in Florida that makes you want to go outside, take a deep breath... and stab the sun right in the face.
Know what I mean?
Fortunately for us, there's now an ADORABLE way to do that:
D'awwww. I love how friendly the sun looks here - not at all like the eye-searing, makeup melting jerk we know he is in real life.
So while I'm huddled inside with the A/C cranked, let's look at some more sweet summery cakes, and pretend it's only a balmy 80 degrees outside.
Look, it's all my favorite kinds of fruit: the CAKE flavored ones!
Plus tropical fruits make everything feel more like a vacation. I mean, look at this pineapple print:

Don't you already feel more relaxed?
I just realized what that pattern reminds me of: remember when I went to Disney's Dapper Day a few months ago?
Ok, back to cake.
For those who prefer ice cream on a hot summer day, how about this giant one?

I love the twist of using flowers in the cone! Plus I want to gnaw on one of those chocolate drips.
Speaking of flowers, these sweet pastels make the perfect summer wedding cake:

And if that's the wedding cake, then you hope to get these at the reception:

Yes, I have a pineapple theme going today. Not even sorry.
Now let's throw in a pretty flamingo for good measure:

Swooning! This almost makes me forgive the flamingo that tried to eat my face in the Bahamas.
Now back to cute fruit:

Everything's cuter with Kawaii faces on it. FACT.
And finally, a watercolor wonder that's truly... [sunglasses]... ONE IN A MELON:

Happy Sunday, everyone! Stay cool out there!
