Nobody wants to be stuck in the kitchen baking cakes in summer – so I often turn to our Food to Order service for a few handy shortcuts. This mini cupcake selection, with fluffy butter-rich sponges topped with lemon, raspberry or vanilla buttercream, is great for celebrations. I make the cakes even more impressive with sweet toppings, which are easy to make at home. Try our Red Diamond strawberries or King cherries dipped in chocolate, Jazzie sprinkles and a caramel pistachio brittle. Use the ideas below to create Instagram-worthy cakes – or, for some interactive fun, put out all the cakes and toppings so guests can decorate their own.
