Summer is in full swing and I hope you are enjoying it as much as we do! This is a season of beach holidays, picnics, pools and of course the tastiest and juiciest berries and fruits. If you want to enjoy them all, I have a great idea – make a summer cake! Embrace the season baking it with fresh fruits and berries that you like and make your family and friends happy. Here are some of the coolest recipes we’ve found on the web.

This heavenly strawberry and vanilla mousse cake is a light version of strawberry, vanilla and chocolate flavored ice cream, with a mint notch that adds a fresh finish to this trio. The dark chocolate base is not dominant in this cake. It has, however, a strong and a waking up effect, like a chocolate topping on your ice-cream which blends perfectly with the rest of the flavors, giving them character and depth. The vanilla mousse is sweet, creamy and delicate. It is so light, that it is almost like eating clouds – it never makes you full, but leaves you craving for more. The strawberry mousse layer, although not the tallest one, brings the dominant flavor of sour, fresh and juicy fruits.

The whipped cream is flavored with a bit of honey and vanilla. It’s a simple matter of layering the three components which, when in several layers, makes for a pretty impressive looking cake!
